Tune of the Day: Harpers Frolic

 Traditional English country dance tune

This very popular English session tune, often paired with “Bonnie Kate”, originally appears in the Harrison and Wall music manuscript from the village of Ashover, Derbyshire, dated 1762-75. The tune has developed from the original in the ‘folk process’ of modern playing, and nowadays it is often considered a polka, although of course it predates the polka form.

Tune of the Day: Perthshire Volunteers

 Traditional Scottish strathspey

The Perthshire Volunteers were the 90th Light Infantry Regiment, a Scottish regiment of the British Army active from 1794 to 1881. It was originally raised for service in the French Revolutionary Wars, and served throughout the 19th century before being amalgamated into the Cameronians (Scottish Rifles).

According to Keith MacDonald's The Skye collection of the best reels & strathspeys extant, this melody was composed by one “Miss Sterling”.

Thanks to Ronald for suggesting this tune!
