Tune of the Day: The Tarbolton Reel

Traditional Scottish reel

Although this tune, also known as “Tarbolton Lodge”, can be heard at Irish sessions, its origins are almost certainly Scottish. In fact, the town of Tarbolton lies in Ayrshire in western Scotland, not far from the banks of the River Ayr. The Scots national poet, Robert Burns, lived with his family of origin near the town for some years when he was a young man.
