Cordal Jig (The)

I learned “The Cordal Jig” from my good friend Sami Koenig, a wonderful fiddle player from Switzerland, during one of his visits to Ireland. Cordal is a village in North Kerry.

    1. Hi Greg! Thanks for leaving a comment 🙂 It is a very old tune, dating back to the late 1700s at least. It is mentioned in James Aird book “Selection of Scotch, English, Irish and Foreign Airs, vol. 3”, published in Glasgow in 1788. It is also present in James Goodman’s collection in the mid 1800s and both books have it under the name “Jackson’s Bouner Bougher” or “Jackson’s Banner Banogher”. I hope that helps!
