Tune of the Day: Jackson's Stranger

Traditional Irish jig

This jig appears in O'Farrell's Pocket Companion for the Irish or Union Pipes, published circa 1810. It is known under several different titles, including “Apples in Winter”, “Gillan's Apples” and “Jackson's Growling Cat”. The Jackson mentioned in the title is almost certainly the 18th-century Irish gentleman-composer Walker “Piper” Jackson.
