"Drowsy Maggie" is a reel that is anything but drowsy and is probably most famous for being one of the tunes played in the steerage party scene in the movie Titanic. Even prior to its film debut, it was a well-established traditional session tune. James Morrison is one of a handful of Irish musicians who, by recording the music of his native Ireland, helped to revitalize Irish music in America during the 1920s and 30s. Among many other tunes, Morrison recorded a jig known both as "The Stick Across the Hob" and "Maurice Carmody's Favorite." Despite these two well documented names, the tune became associated with Morrison and is now known far and wide as "Morrison's Jig."
