Tune of the Day: Happy We've Been A' Thegither

Traditional Scottish tune

This piece is an example of a schottische tune. The schottische is a partnered country dance which used to be very popular in Victorian-era ballrooms. Despite its name, the dance appears to have originated in Bohemia, a historical region in the present-day Czech Republic, over a thousand miles away from Scotland.

The word “thegither” in the title is Scotch for “together”.
