Tune of the Day: The Bow-Legged Tailor

Traditional Irish jig

This tune first appeared as “The Bow-Legged Tailor” in Francis O'Neill's celebrated collection Music of Ireland, published in Chicago in 1903. It is however very similar to “Sheriff Muldoon's”, one of several compositions credited to a “J. Hand” in Ryan's Mammoth Collection, which had been published in Boston 20 years earlier.
