Tune of the Day: Old Time Straight Jig

Traditional American tune

This 2/4-time “jig” is taken from Harding's All-Round Collection of Jigs, Reels and Country Dances, published in New York in 1905. A “straight jig” was a type of duple-time syncopated clog tune popular in the latter 19th century, also called a “sand jig”, particularly used as an accompaniment to stage clog or hornpipe dancing.
