Tune of the Day: The Pipers' Picnic
Traditional Irish jig
The earliest known appearance of this tune in print is in Francis O'Neill's collection Music of Ireland: 1850 Melodies, published in Chicago in 1903.
Since 1965, there has actually been an event called the “Pipers Picnic” held every year in Earltown, Nova Scotia on the first Saturday in August.
