Tune of the Day: Cabar Feigh

Traditional Scottish tune

This popular reel has long been a mainstay of Scottish tradition, and has been subsumed into the Irish. The earliest record of the tune is in Scottish musician David Young's manuscript of 1734, also known as the Drummond Castle manuscript.

To this day, the tune often accompanies a famous Highland Dance in which the dancers symbolically simulate the shape of deer's antlers with arms and fingers.
