Tune of the Day: Harpers Frolic

Traditional English country dance tune

This very popular English session tune, often paired with “Bonnie Kate”, originally appears in the Harrison and Wall music manuscript from the village of Ashover, Derbyshire, dated 1762-75. The tune has developed from the original in the ‘folk process’ of modern playing, and nowadays it is often considered a polka, although of course it predates the polka form.
