Tune of the Day: The Splashing of the Churn

Traditional Irish slip jig

The first appearance of this melody in print is in The Petrie Collection of the Ancient Music of Ireland (Dublin, 1855) under the Gaelic title "Glugur an Mheadair", which translates as "Gurgling/Splashing of the Churn". The same tune is also known under a few other names, including “A Fig for a Kiss” and “The Old Dutch Churn”.
