Tune of the Day: I'll Tell Me Ma

Traditional Irish tune

This tune is used by at least three popular songs: “The Belle of Belfast City”, “The Wind, the Wind” and “My Aunt Jane”. It is also often played as a polka. The song is traditional throughout both Ireland and Great Britain. In Ireland the chorus usually refers to Belfast city and is known colloquially as “The Belle of Belfast City”, although it is also adapted to other Irish cities, such as Dublin and Galway. English versions, on the other hand, refer to the “Golden City” or “London City”.

Thanks to Ainslee for suggesting this tune!
