Tune of the Day: The Boy from the Mountain

Traditional Irish jig

The earliest appearance of this jig is under its Irish title, “Buachaill ó’n Sliabh”, in the large mid-19th century music manuscript collection of County Cork clergyman and uilleann piper James Goodman.

The present ornamented setting is taken from Francis O'Neill's Dance Music of Ireland, published in Chicago in 1907.
