Tune of the Day: Orange and Blue

Traditional Scottish strathspey

Also known as “Brochan Lom” (which is Scots Gaelic for “Thin Porridge”), this tune is associated with the Scottish country dance of the same name, one of the relatively few either wholly or in part in strathspey tempo. The title “Orange and Blue” probably refers to the colors of the Dutch House of Orange, one of whose princes, William of Orange, became a king of England and champion of the Protestant cause in the 17th century.
