Tune of the Day: George Booker

Traditional American tune

This melody first appears under the title “George Booker” in the third volume of George P. Knauff's Virginia Reels (Baltimore, 1839), apparently in honor of a Revolutionary War leader and local hero from Virginia. The tune is probably a derivation of a strathspey called “The Marquis of Huntly's Farewell” by the Scottish composer William Marshall.
