Tune of the Day: Kinlock of Kinlock
Traditional Scottish/Irish air, arranged for two flutes
This flute duet is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in Philadelphia in 1833.
“Kinloch of Kinloch” has been a popular melody in England, Scotland, Ireland, and North America, variously employed as a march, jig, and song air. It is sometimes attributed to Scottish politician George Kinloch of Kinloch (1775–1833). The Gaelic name kinloch means “end of the lake”.
