About "Little Pack Of Tailors"
Little Pack of Tailors was collected from the wonderful Elizabeth Cronin of Muscerry. It's a good example of a song with a particular function—in this case, a dandling song (i.e. jiggling the baby) adapted from the well-known reel "The Wind That Shakes the Barley." It's followed by the Bag of Spuds, a reel first recorded by Michael Coleman back in 1921.
