HUMORS OF CLARE (Sugra an Tuaidmuman). AKA and see "Cat's Bagpipes (The), "Jackson's Rolling Jig." Irish, Double Jig (6/8 time). D Mixolydian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'BB'CC. Patrick Weston Joyce printed a four-part version of the tune in his Old Irish Folk Music and Songs (1909) as "Cat's Bagpipes (The)", and a similar four-part version is to be found in Canon James Goodman's mid-19th century music manuscript as an untitled jig (vol. 3, p. 142). A near duplicate of O'Neill's "Humors of Clare" appears in Petrie's manuscripts as the generically-titled "Old Clare Jig" (printed in Stanford/Petrie, 1905, No. 942).
