Oswestry Wake

I played this in a barndance ceili a couple of days ago. A lively tune to start the proceedings and get the dancers moving.

Oswestry Wake

Version 3 is transcribed from the Spiers and Boden album Through And Through. Their version is slightly different from the previous ones and I have put it down as accurately as I can, although they do vary it a bit on different runs through.
