Tune of the Day: Meg Merrilies

Traditional dance tune

“Meg Merrilies” is the name of a Scottish country dance, commonly taught by dancing masters in the 19th century. In Elias Howe's 1867 collection 1000 Jigs and Reels, however, it is classified as an “English Country Dance”.

The title actually derives from the name of a character in Sir Walter Scott's 1815 novel Guy Mannering, and it is also the title of a poem by John Keats.
