Tune of the Day: I'm Owre Young to Marry Yet

Traditional Scottish reel

The earliest appearance of this tune is found in Robert Bremner's A Collection of Scots Reels (1757). The melody therefore predates Robert Burns's reworking of “I'm o'er young to marry”, an old song which already existed before the Scots poet's birth.
