Tune of the Day: The Blazing Turf Fire

Traditional Irish jig

The earliest known appearance of this jig is in Francis O'Neill's celebrated collection Music of Ireland, published in Chicago in 1903. O'Neill obtained the tune from the playing of Chicago fiddler Edward Cronin, originally from County Tipperary.
