Tune of the Day: Money in Both Pockets
Traditional Scottish/Irish jig
The first known appearance of this jig is in Robert Petrie's A Collection of Strathspeys, Reels and Country Dances, published in Edinburgh in 1790. It then quickly started appearing, both as a dance and as a tune, in numerous publications and musicians' manuscripts in the 1790s and the early decades of the 19th century.
