Tune of the Day: Jackson's Silver Mines

Traditional Irish jig

This tune was originally printed simply as “Silver-mines” in O'Farrell's Collection of National Music for the Union Pipes (c. 1800). The Jackson of the title was the famous 18th-century gentleman piper Walker ‛Piper’ Jackson, but judging from early printings this association only came to be during the 19th century.
