IRISH DRAGOON .AKA - "Irish Dragoon Jig." American, Jig (6/8 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Boston music publisher Elias Howe credits the composition of "Irish Dragoon Jig" to "J.W. Raymond". He is perhaps the J.W. Raymond who ran dancing academies in Portland, Maine, in the latter half of the 19th century, and whose name appears in local papers fairly regularly.
