Tune of the Day: Handy with the Stick

Traditional Irish jig

This jig first appears in Francis O'Neill's Music of Ireland, published in Chicago in 1903. In a 1906 letter to poet and folklorist Alfred Percival Graves, O'Neill wrote that he obtained the tune from listening to a pianist play it while attending a Chicago theater.
