Tune of the Day: John Hand's Dream
Traditional Irish reel
This E-minor reel, probably of Irish origin, is taken from Harding's All-Round Collection of Jigs, Reels and Country Dances, published in New York in 1905. The title perhaps refers to the same “J. Hand” or Johnny Hand to whom several tunes are attributed to in Ryan's Mammoth Collection (1883).
