Tune of the Day: The Humors of Bantry

Traditional Irish jig

American musicologist Samuel Bayard (Dance to the Fiddle, March to the Fife, 1981) calls this tune a “thoroughly characteristic Irish jig, probably of no great age”. Its earliest known appearance is in Francis O'Neill's collection Music of Ireland, published in Chicago in 1903.
