Tune of the Day: How Are You Kitty?

Traditional Irish jig

The earliest appearance of this tune is in Irish violinist R.M. Levey's second collection of The Dance Music of Ireland (London, 1873), under the title “How are you now Kitty?”. The tune was also entered as an untitled jig into Book 3 of the large circa-1883 music manuscript collection of County Leitrim piper and fiddler Stephen Grier. The shorter title “How Are You Kitty?” is first found in Francis O'Neill's 1903 collection Music Of Ireland, which also includes variants of the tune such as The Woodcock.
