TOUCH IT UP TIGHT. AKA and see "Connolly's Jig," "Jig (57)," "My Brother Tom." Irish, Jig (6/8 time). E Dorian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune is contained in the large mid-19th century music manuscript collection (vol. 3, p. 85) of Canon biography:James Goodman (County Cork). The first strain is similar to that of "Foxy Mary (1)," with the melodic contour raised up a step. Goodman researcher Lisa Shields finds the tune cognate with P.W. Joyce's "Connolly's Jig," and files both tunes with the "Huish the Cat" tune family. Conor Ward links the tune with latter 19th century Co. Leitrim musician Stephen Grier's untitled "Jig (57)."
