Tune of the Day: Da New Rigged Ship

Traditional Scottish reel

This traditional reel comes from Shetland. According to Tom Anderson's book Ringing Strings, “the tune celebrates the rigging out with new sails and mast of a fishing boat, which the owner proudly calls a ship”.

From a musical standpoint, this tune is interesting because it is of mixed mode: the first part is in D Mixolydian, the second part is in A major, and the last part is in A Dorian.
