Tune of the Day: Reel of Stumpie

Traditional Scottish tune

The earliest recorded appearance of this reel is in David Young's Duke of Perth Manuscript (a.k.a. the Drummond Castle MS), which dates back to 1734. It was probably derived from “Buttered Peas”, an air that can be found in James Ralph's 1730 opera Fashionable Lady.
