Tune of the Day: Jackson's Rolling Jig

Traditional Irish jig

The earliest known appearance of this melody is in Cooke's Collection of Favourite Country Dances for 1797, under the title “Jackson's Rowling Pin”. In this context, “Jackson” would almost invariably be the famous 18th-century gentleman piper Walker ‛Piper’ Jackson, although it is uncertain whether he authored this particular tune. Ayrshire violinist and composer John Hall included the jig in his c. 1818 collection (as “Jackson's Roller”), but curiously did not attribute the tune "By Jackson" as he did with numerous other jigs in his collection.
