Tune of the Day: Kate Dalrymple

Traditional Scottish reel

The melody to this traditional Scottish reel, which is based on an ancient folk-tune, was first published in 1750 under the title “The New Highland Laddie”. There are accompanying words, written by William Watt (1792−1859), and as a song the piece becomes something of a tongue-twister for those unfamiliar with the Scots language.

This tune is used by the BBC as the theme music for the BBC Radio Scotland dance music program Take the Floor.
