Tune of the Day: Jackson's Cravat

Traditional Irish jig

The earliest known appearance of this tune is in Gough's Collection of Country Dances for the Year 1802.

A cravat is the precursor of the modern necktie. The garment was also a means of identification for faction fighters in Ireland in the 19th century, in imitation of its use by late 18th-century gentlemen such as uilleann piper Walker ‛Piper’ Jackson, to whom the title refers.
