Tune of the Day: The Humors of Ballingarry

Traditional Irish jig

The earliest known appearance of this jig is in Francis O'Neill's collection Music Of Ireland, published in Chicago in 1903. It bears however a strong resemblance to the minor-mode tune “Molly's Favourite”, which first appeared in Patrick O'Flannagan's The Hibernia Collection (1860).
