Tune of the Day: Cannie Hobbie Elliot

Traditional English jig

This compound-triple-time jig comes from Northumberland. It appeared in print as early as 1759 in James Oswald's Caledonian Pocket Companion.

A couple years ago, the English folk group The Unthanks recorded a version of this piece on their album Last.
