Tune of the Day: The Cat in the Corner

Traditional Irish jig

The earliest known appearance of “The Cat in the Corner” is in Ryan's Mammoth Collection, published in Boston in 1883. However, the tune was likely derived from an earlier jig by Scottish fiddler Niel Gow (1727–1807) titled “Lady Charlotte Murray”.
