The origin of thetune was for a long time somewhat mysterious, as no other collectorof folk tunes encountered it, and all known examples are descendedfrom Ms. Ross’ submission to Petrie’s collection (1855). The title ofthe air comes from the name of the county located in NorthernIreland. The air was collected by Jane Ross of Limavady, CountyLondonderry, who heard it played by an itinerant piper or fiddler.The descendants of blind fiddler Jimmy McCurry assert that he is themusician from whom she transcribed the tune but there is nohistorical evidence to support this speculation. The tune was listedas an anonymous air, with a note attributing its collection to JaneRoss of Londonderry. This led to the descriptive title "LondonderryAir" being used for the piece.
