LARRY REDICAN'S JIG [1]. AKA and see "Legacy (2) (The)," "Skiver the Quilt (1)," "Tailor's Wedding (The)." The "Larry Redican's" title honors the influential 20th century New York fiddler of that name, and comes form Jack & Fr. Charlie Coen's "Branch Line" album. Early printings of the jig are in R.M. Levey's Dancd Musique of Ireland (1858) as "Skiver the Quilt (1)" and in O'Neill's Music of Ireland (1903) as "The Tailor's Wedding," however, the tune is usually known as "The Legacy," particularly by County Clare musicians. See also Scottish tune family antecedents in the Gaelic port-a-beul "Fosgail an dorus," and (as in O'Neill) "Tailor's Wedding (The)."
