Tune of the Day: Light and Airy
Traditional Irish/Scottish jig
This jig is taken from Francis O'Neill's collection Waifs and Strays of Gaelic Melody, published in 1922. O'Neill remarks that “Light and Airy” first appeared in A Choice Collection of Scots Reels or Country Dances & Strathspeys, etc., published by Robert Ross at Edinburgh in 1780.
