Tune of the Day: Wellington's Advance

Traditional Irish jig

This jig, commemorative of the Duke of Wellington, England's Napoleonic Wars hero, is taken from Francis O'Neill's collection Music of Ireland, published in Chicago in 1903. O'Neill identifies “Wellington's Advance” as an Ulster tune, and says it was “unknown in the Southern provinces” of Ireland.
