Tune of the Day: The Belles of Liscarroll
Traditional Irish jig
This jig is taken from Francis O'Neill's collection The Dance Music of Ireland, published in 1907.
The first part of the tune is in C major, while the second and third parts are in D, and are sometimes played in Dorian mode rather than in major (this is easily accomplished by ignoring the two sharps in the key signature).
