Tune of the Day: The Hills of Glenorchy

Traditional Scottish jig

This old Scottish tune dates back to at least the 18th century. In Ireland it is usually called “The Jolly Corkonian”, but even in Scotland one can find many different versions and titles for the same tune. It is traditionally played in the keys of E or A, either minor or Dorian (that is, like minor but with the sixth degree raised a semitone).
