Tune of the Day: Come to the Raffle

Traditional jig

The earliest appearance of this tune is found in Ryan's Mammoth Collection (Boston, 1883), in which it is attributed to “Jas. Hand”. Unfortunately, nothing is known for certain regarding who this was, although it is likely he was a stage performer or band-leader from Massachusetts in the mid-19th century. It is worth noting that, as with other melodies printed by the same publisher, the attribution may indicate only the source from whom it was collected, and not its actual origin.
