JACKSON'S MAID . Irish, Jig (6/8 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune, like many with 'Jackson' in the title, is attributed by County Cork cleric and uilleann piper James Goodman (musicologist) to the 18th century gentleman-piper Walker 'Piper' Jackson, of the townland of Lisdaun, parish of Ballingarry, Aughrim, County Limerick. Whether Jackson actually composed all the tunes with his name in the title is doubtful, however. Goodman entered the jig into volume 2 of his extensive mid-19th century music manuscript collection (p. 92).
