Tune of the Day: Snug in the Blanket

Traditional Irish jig

The earliest known appearance of this jig is in the second volume of O'Farrell's Pocket Companion for the Irish or Union Pipes , published in London around 1806. It was listed under the title “Calloch a Theusa”, a phonetic version of the Irish Cailleach a' Shúsa meaning “Hag of the Blanket”. The title “Snug in the Blanket” first appears in Francis O'Neill's collection Music of Ireland, published in Chicago in 1903.
