Tune of the Day: The Humors of Ross

Traditional Irish jig

The earliest appearance of this jig in print is in the 3rd volume of O'Farrell's Pocket Companion for the Irish or Union Pipes, published around 1808. Unusually, the collection does not indicate a provenance for this tune, but it is generally assumed that it is of Irish origin.
