Tune of the Day: Lamberton Races

Traditional Scottish tune

This reel was written by Nathaniel Gow, a famous Scottish fiddler of the 18th century. The tune also goes by the title “Colonel Renton's Favourite”, which refers to the Colonel Renton who owned the extensive estate of Lamberton in Berwickshire, Scotland. Until 1837, there was public horse racing held for several days at the end of May, and a ball was usually held at the end of the event.
