Tune of the Day: The Grumbling Rustic
Traditional Irish jig
This jig is taken from Francis O'Neill's celebrated collection Music of Ireland, published in Chicago in 1903. It is probably much older, though, as O'Neill found an elaborate four-part version in McGoun's Repository of Scots and Irish Airs (c. 1800) under the title “Gillan na Drover”.
