Tune 152 - Garry Owen

The Garry Owen is an Irish tune for a quickstep dance. It was selected as a marching tune for British, Canadian, and American military formations, most notably Custer's 7th Cavalry. A well travelled tune that turns up in the morris dance repertoire as The Walk of the Tuppenny Postman.
