Tune of the Day: The Weavers' March

Traditions English tune

This melody, a trade tune associated with the weavers, was printed in the first volume of James Aird's Selections of Scotch, English, Irish and Foreign Airs, published in 1782. Scotland's national poet, Robert Burns, wrote verses to the march; the song, called “The Gallant Weaver”, tells of a young woman's defiance and disagreement with her parents' plans for who she should wed.

Thanks to Phil for suggesting this tune!
