Tune of the Day: Pither In Enough
The earliest appearance of this tune is in Samuel Lee's Jackson's Celebrated Irish Tunes, first published in Dublin around 1775. It is attributed to the 18th-century gentleman uilleann piper and composer Walker ‘Piper’ Jackson.
The title “Pither in Enough” (or “Put in Enough”) might refer to a gambling ante, especially given that Jackson was also known as “Sporting Capt. Jackson”.
