Tune of the Day: When I Parted

Traditional Scottish jig

This tune is popular in Irish tradition under the names “The Trip to Sligo” and, sometimes, “Lark in the Morning” (but it shall not be confused with another popular jig also called “Lark in the Morning”). However, it is believed to be a composition of Scottish fiddler John Anderson (1737–1808) who published it, as “When I Parted”, in his circa-1790 A Collection of New Highland Strathspey Reels For the Violin or German Flute.
