Tune of the Day: The Templehouse Jig
Traditional Irish jig
It seems extremely likely that this Irish jig descended from “Dunkeld House”, which was written by the famous Scots fiddler-composer Niel Gow around the 1770s.
The present version of the tune is taken from Francis O'Neill's The Dance Music of Ireland, published in Chicago in 1907.
