JACKSON'S JIG [1]. AKA and see "Jig (85)." Irish, Jig (6/8 time). A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABBCC. Composed probably "by a gentleman piper and fiddler called "Piper" Jackson (whose first name was "Walker", although sometimes given, erroneously, as 'Walter'), who lived in Co. Limerick in the mid-18th century. It is also claimed that he wrote the well-known 'Irish Washerwoman', as well as a great many other tunes, mainly jigs." Alan Ng finds the second and third strains similar to "Jackson's Bottle of Brandy", while the 1st strain is similar to that of "Lost and Found."
