Tune of the Day: Jenny Bell

Traditional English polka

The earliest appearance of this beautiful polka can be found in the George H. Watson manuscript, Swanton Abbott, Norfolk, c. 1880. English folklorist Peter Kennedy recorded the tune in the 1950s from the playing of Northumbrian piper Jack Armstrong (1904–1978), who had the tune from his father Robert's manuscript collection.

Thanks to Phil for suggesting this tune!
