Tune of the Day: Captain Keeler
Traditional Scottish reel
The earliest printing of this tune is in Neil Stewart's A Collection of the Newest and the Best Reels and Country Dances (1761), as “Captain Keller”, a title that persisted in 18th-century publications. In 19th-century collections, however, the same reel most often appears as “Captain Keeler”.
