Tune of the Day: Lamb Skinnet

Traditional Scottish jig

This country dance tune, also known as “Lanquenet”, dates back to at least 1753. The expression “Lamb Skinnet” has a documented history as the vulgar term for “Lansquenet”, the name of a card game, which is itself a corruption of the German Landsknecht, meaning a German mercenary soldier.

Thanks to Ronald for suggesting this tune!
