Tune of the Day: Blue Eyed Mary

Traditional English jig

The earliest appearance of this jig in print is in Elias Howe's The Complete Preceptor for the Accordeon, published in Boston in 1843.

“Blue-eyed Mary” is the name of a bicolored white-and-blue flower that is native to the eastern and central parts of North America. It is possible, however, that the Mary of this tune's title was an actual person.
