Tune of the Day: The Smith's a Gallant Fireman
Traditional Scottish strathspey
In his 1986 Scots fiddle collection Beauties of the North, Bill Hardie remarks that the title of this strathspey refers to the days when the village blacksmith would serve the populace not only by his trade, but would also be called upon to extinguish fires in the event of an emergency.
Thanks to Ronald for suggesting this tune!
