Tune of the Day: Hinchy's Fancy
Traditional Irish jig
This jig is taken from Francis O'Neill's collection Waifs and Strays of Gaelic Melody, published in 1922. It is named after Tom Hinchy, a blind fiddler from East Clare, Ireland. O'Neill considers this tune to be “a better setting” of “Hinchy's Delight”, a similar piece which had previously appeared in his 1903 collection Music of Ireland.
