Tune of the Day: The Irish Hop Pickers

Traditional Irish slip jig

One of the first appearances of this jig in print is in Thomas Wilson's A Companion to the Ball Room, published in London in 1816. The same melody also appeared in the third volume of Edward Riley's Flute Melodies (New York, 1820).
