Tune of the Day: The Old Plunk

Traditional American tune

This old-time tune is taken from Harding's All-Round Collection of Jigs, Reels and Country Dances, published in New York in 1905. The piece is called a “banjo jig”, a term which, while referencing the instrument, also describes a group of duple-time, syncopated, binary melodies that were often used for dancing.
