Jackson’s Cook In The Kitchen

A jig from piper Leo Rowsome, taken from the book of tunes he wrote out for students; a recording of Leo playing it may be heard at the Comhaltas archives, too. Leo’s grandfather was renowned for the number of rare jigs he had and this is probably an example of such. I’ve replaced the old-fashioned devices Leo used for indicating rolls (graced triplet or two 16ths followed by an 8th) with the usual symbol.

The title is intriguing, this tune has nothing to do with the usual Cook of course; Jackson was the name of two gentleman pipers of the late 18th century, both of whom composed excellent tunes.
