Tune of the Day: My Ain Fireside

Scottish ballad, arranged for two flutes

This duet is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in Philadelphia in 1833. It is an arrangement of a popular Scottish ballad with words by Elizabeth Hamilton (1756–1816). Blake attributes the tune to “Sinclair”, probably Scottish singer John Sinclair (1791–1857), who helped popularize the song.
