Tune of the Day: The White Blanket

Traditional Irish tune

“The White Blanket” (“An Súisín Bán”) is the name of both a contemporary and traditional Irish set dance. What is probably the earliest version of the melody appears in John and William Neales's Collection of the Most Celebrated Irish Tunes (Dublin, 1726). Many different variants of the tune have appeared ever since.
