Tune of the Day: My Love She's But a Lassie Yet

Traditional Scottish reel

The title “My Love She's But a Lassie Yet” was fixed on this tune because of the song Robert Burns composed to it, although the tune itself seems to have first appeared in print in Bremner's Scots Reels of 1757 as “Miss Farqharson's Reel”. Despite its Scottish origins, it soon became a popular tune in England, and was also imported to Ireland, where it was converted to a polka and played under the titles “My Love is But a Lassie” and “Tripping on the Mountain”. Under this last title it was famously recorded by flute player John McKenna and fiddler James Morrison.
