Tune of the Day: Never Grow Old

Traditional Irish reel

This Irish reel was collected by Chicago police captain Francis O'Neill, who included it in his collection Waifs and Strays of Gaelic Melody, published in 1922. The exact same tune had previously appeared as “Miss Bushby Maitland's Reel” in the first book of Köhler's Violin Repository of Dance Music, published in Edinburgh in 1881.
