Tune of the Day: Iron Legs

Traditional English reel

The title of this tune is possibly a corruption of “Iron League“, title by which the tune appears in various musician's manuscript collections from the 19th century. Others think that the title refers to the famous stage performer and dancer Giuseppe Grimaldi, known as ‘Iron Legs’ for his amazing leaps. Grimaldi is also remembered as the father of Joseph Grimaldi, the ‘father of clowning’, who invented the modern-day whiteface clown.
