Tune of the Day: Father Dollard's Favorite

Traditional Irish jig

This jig is taken from Francis O'Neill's celebrated collection Music of Ireland, published in Chicago in 1903. Father W.K. Dollard was a fiddler and flute player from St. John's, New Brunswick, where he was the rector of a parish. While he was visiting Chicago in 1901, he attended gatherings of the Irish Music Club, where O'Neill obtained a few tunes from him.
