All The Night I Lay With Jockey

This is a great 3/2 tune which is very old but still quite popular amongst NSPipers. This was transcribed from a compilation of Cut & Dry Band pipes recordings called "The Wind In The Reeds". The setting comes from the early 19th century John Peacock manuscript. A similar setting appeared in the Minstrelsy at the end of the 19th century, albeit with only 4 parts (those mad last 2 parts were omitted) and the title changed to "All The Night I Lay Awake". Apparently it was censored because the Jockey title was felt to be too smutty for Victorian sensibilities! A version of this 4-part setting appears on Nancy Kerr & James Fagan’s "Starry Gazy Pie" in a set with "Lang Stay’d Away" http://www.thesession.org/tunes/3024 and "Little Fishie" http://www.thesession.org/tunes/1259.

Kathryn Tickell

She plays a 3 part version (if memory serves me right - lost the tape) on The Kathryn Tickell Band’s eponymous album.

Great tune! Nice one Mark.
