CAT'S BAGPIPES, THE. AKA and see "Humors of Clare." Irish, Jig (6/8 time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABBCCDD. The tune is called "Jackson's Rolling Pin" in Cooke's Collection of Favourite Country Dances for 1797, and a similar title, "Jackson's Rolling Jig" is the name of the tune in the Boston-published Ryan's Mammoth Collection (1883). The four-part tune appears in the large mid-19th century music manuscript collection of County Cork cleric and uilleann piper Canon James Goodman as an untitled jig (vol. 3, p. 142). Francis O'Neill prints a three-part version in his Dance Music of Ireland (1907) as "Humors of Clare." See also the related "Hush the Cat."
