Tune of the Day: Young Damon's Flight

Traditional English jig

This melody was composed by the English dancing master Nathaniel Kynaston (1683-1757). Although very little is known about him, Kynaston appears to have been active from 1705 to about 1722 in the Shropshire/Wales border area, publishing over 120 tunes and dances. “Young Damon's Flight” appears in his Second Book of the Compleat Country Dancing Master, published in 1719.
