Tune of the Day: The Long Room of Scarborough

Traditional English slip jig

Early printings of this 9/8-time jig appear in John Johnson's Choice Collection of 200 Favourite Country Dances (1748), David Rutherford's Compleat Collection of 200 of the Most Celebrated Country Dances (1756), and James Aird's Selections of Scotch, English, Irish and Foreign Airs (1782).

The “long room” of the title refers to a large assembly hall constructed for dancing, one of the principal recreations of the leisure class in the 18th century.
