“Barn Elms”

Another ‘old 3/2 hornpipe’ ~ for Doc Dow’s sake… The earliest date I’ve been able to confirm for this tune and dance are its inclusion in collections by both Walsh between 1711 (John Walsh, "The New Country Dancing Master, the 2nd book, page 94) and 1728 (Playford’s Dancing Master, the 2nd Volume, 4th Edition, page 157).
