Tune of the Day: Merrily Kiss the Quaker

Traditional Scottish tune

This tune, most likely of Scottish origin, can be traced to Dublin publishers John and William Neal, who printed a version as “Ye Ragg” in their A Choice Collection of Country Dances (1724), a collection of tunes of mixed English, Scottish and Irish provenance. Under the title “Merrily Kiss the Quaker”, essentially the same tune was later printed in the 4th volume of O'Farrell's Pocket Companion for the Irish or Union Pipes (c. 1810).
