Tune of the Day: The Widow Brady

Traditional Irish jig

The first appearance of this jig is, under the title “Lafrican's” (which has been suggested might be a corruption of “Lorrigan's”), in Ryan's Mammoth Collection, published in Boston in 1883. The title “The Widow Brady” was introduced by Francis O'Neill in his Music of Ireland (1903).
