Tune of the Day: The Penniless Traveller

Traditional Irish jig

This old strain, associated with the uilleann piping tradition, appeared in print at least as early as 1798, albeit in a much simpler setting. According to O'Neill's Waifs and Strays of Gaelic Melody, it was included in six Collections of Country Dances published in London in that year.
