Tune of the Day: The Crooked Bawbee

 Traditional Scottish air

Originally a Scottish song air, with alternating verses sung by a man and a woman, this tune has become very popular in Northumbria, where it is now a part of the local piping repertoire.

A bawbee was a Scottish halfpenny, a copper coin that was hammered until 1677.

Thanks to Phil for suggesting this tune!

Tune of the Day: La Carmagnole

 Variations for flute and bass instrument

This brilliant set of variations on “La Carmagnole” was written by Italian violinist and composer Giuseppe Maria Cambini in 1794. It was published together with a set of variations on “La Marseillaise” titled “Marche des Marseillois”.

As a song, “La Carmagnole” was created and made popular during the French Revolution, based on a dance tune of the same name that may have been brought into France by the Piedmontese. The title comes from the name of the short jacket worn by working-class militant sans-culottes, adopted from the Piedmontese peasant costume, whose name derives from the town of Carmagnola.

Tune of the Day: Captain Keeler

 Traditional Scottish reel

The earliest printing of this tune is in Neil Stewart's A Collection of the Newest and the Best Reels and Country Dances (1761), as “Captain Keller”, a title that persisted in 18th-century publications. In 19th-century collections, however, the same reel most often appears as “Captain Keeler”.
