Tune of the Day: The Woodcock

Traditional Irish jig

This catchy jig is taken from Francis O'Neill's collection Music of Ireland, published in Chicago in 1903. O'Neill's source was Chicago policeman and fiddler Timothy Dillon. Although this is the earliest known appearance of the tune in print, the melody is related to that of older jigs such as “How Are You Kitty?”.
