Tune of the Day: Kinloch of Kinloch
This popular melody dates back to the 18th century, one of its earliest known appearances being in John Watlen's Second Collection of Circus Tunes (1798). “Kinloch of Kinloch” has been employed variously as a march, song air, jig, and even as a waltz. Variants can be found in Britain and North America, as well as Ireland. The old Northumbrian song “Blaw the Wind Southerly” is also based on it.
