Tune of the Day: John Anderson My Jo, John

Traditional Scottish song, arranged for two flutes

“John Anderson, My Jo” was originally a bawdy ballad, which Robert Burns turned into a charming verse about the continuing love of an old married couple. The Scottish national poet adapted the song in 1790 for inclusion in James Johnson's Scots Musical Museum.

The present arrangement for two flutes appeared in Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in Philadelphia in 1833.
