Tune of the Day: Miss Wardlaw's Reel

Traditions English tune

John Watlen attributes this tune to a “Mr. Clarkson” in his Celebrated Circus Tunes (Edinburgh, 1791), in which volume the melody first appears. The collection's title refers to Edinburgh's Royal Circus, an extension of Phillip Astley's London-based Royal Circus. The venue featured equestrian acts, acrobatics, songs, dance and pantomime. The composer attribution may refer to John Clarkson or John Clarkson Jr., both Edinburgh dancing masters and musicians.
