Tune of the Day: Sergeant Early's Jig

Traditional Irish jig

This tune is taken from Francis O'Neill's 1903 collection Music of Ireland. The title refers to Chicago Police Sergeant James Early, a piper originally from County Leitrim, who had a store of tunes in a manuscript consisting of the first few bars of each. O'Neill said of him: “Kindly, unassuming, patient, tolerant, helpful and hospitable.”
