SOW IN THE SACK, THE. English, Reel (cut time). A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The melody appears in two mid-18th century periodicals, Sylvanus Urban's Gentleman's Magazine and Historical Chronicle (1751) and Benjamin Martin's The General Magazine of Arts and Sciences (1755). The title is perhaps a topical reference to a political or Royal scandal.
