Tune of the Day: Drummore's Rant

Traditional Scottish reel

The earliest appearance of this double-tonic (C-major/G-mixolydian) tune in print is in Robert Bremner's 1757 book A Collection of Scots Reels. However, it had earlier appeared in David Young's copybook labelled “A Collection of Country Dances written for use of his Grace the Duke of Perth by Dav. Young, 1734”, which is also known as “the Drummond Castle Manuscript” as it is preserved at Drummond Castle, Crieff, Perthshire, Scotland.
