Tune of the Day: Scarborough Whim

Traditional English dance tune

The title of this country dance tune refers to the seaside spa town of Scarborough, North Yorkshire, England, which is often remembered for the song “Scarborough Fair”. Today's melody appears in the first volume of Rutherford's Compleat Collection of 200 of the Most Celebrated Country Dances, which was first published circa 1756.
