Tune of the Day: The Lea Rigg

Traditional scottish tune

This tune appears in several 18th-century manuscripts, the earliest being the McFarlane Manuscript (1740). The present arrangement for two flutes is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in Philadelphia in 1833.

A “lea rig” has been variously defined as a “grassy ridge”, an “unploughed field”, and the “ridge in a field left unploughed between ridges bearing grain”.
