Tune of the Day: Lucky in Love

Traditional Irish reel

This reel owes its popularity to Irish flute player John McKenna (1880–1947), who emigrated to New York in 1911. “Lucky in Love” was apparently a local Leitrim tune that McKenna brought into the standard repertoire through his influential 1934 recording. The origins of the tune are probably Scottish, however, as it appears to be derived from “I'll Gang Nae Mair to Yon Town”.

Thanks to Heather for suggesting this tune!
