Tune of the Day: Trim the Bonnet

Traditional Irish reel

This reel comes from the Rice-Walsh manuscript, a collection of music from the repertoire of the 19th-century Irish fiddler Jeremiah Breen. In his volume Waifs and Strays of Gaelic Melody (1922), tune collector Francis O’Neill remarks that this tune is a variant of “Tie the Bonnet”.
