Tune of the Day: Mrs. Spens Monroe

Traditional Scottish jig

This jig was first printed in the 4th volume of Glasgow publisher James Aird's Selection of Scotch, English, Irish and Foreign Airs (1796). However, the tune has also had a long history in Ireland, and might have an Irish provenance.

Spens (or Spence) Monroe is a Scottish family name. The fifth President of the United States, James Monroe (1758–1831), is said to have descended from one line of Spens Monroe.
