Tune of the Day: The Academy Jig

Traditional Scottish dance tune

This lively country dance tune appears in the first volume of James S. Kerr's Merry Melodies (circa 1870), one of the most popular collections of Scottish tunes ever published. Its composition is attributed to a J. Rule. The “academy” of the title is probably a dancing academy.
