Tune of the Day: Connie the Soldier

Traditional Irish jig

The earliest appearance of the title “Connie the Soldier” is in Francis O'Neill's celebrated collection Music of Ireland, published in Chicago in 1903. However, very similar tunes had already appeared, under the titles “Banish Misfortune” and “The Bacagh of the Wattle”, in Robert Petrie's Ancient Music of Ireland (Dublin, 1882).
