Tune of the Day: Greig's Pipes

Traditional Irish reel and strathspey

According to John Glen's volume Early Scottish Melodies (1900), this tune is a composition of James Greig, a teacher of dancing in Ayrshire, in south-west Scotland. The melody must date back at least to the mid-18th century, as it appears in the Gillespie Manuscript of Perth (1768).
