Tune of the Day: The Sailor's Bonnet

Traditional Irish reel

The “Sailor’s Bonnet” is the third and last tune of a famous medley by Irish fiddler Michael Coleman, following “The Tarbolton” and “The Longford Collector”, frequently played at Irish sessions down to this day. The first part is often played single, and the second part doubled, totaling eight and sixteen bars, respectively.
