Tune of the Day: Bonny Kate

Traditional English dance tune

This tune, also known as “Black Legs”, was first published under the title “Bonny Kate” in John Johnson’s Two Hundred Favourite Country Dances (London, 1758). It was not originally a polka but rather a common-time vehicle for a country dance; however, it has been popularized in modern times as a polka by the New Victory Band and others.
