A hornpipe that’s often played (undotted) at the pub session in the "Queen Victoria" (Priddy, Somerset, England).
There are many other variants of this tune - an abc posting opportunity for someone - ceolachan, maybe?
I was going to say "I don’t know this one!", but I do. I think it has been used for contra dancing, ‘straight’ of course. I’ll have to see if I can find something more on it, like ‘another transcription’, or a recording to make one from. It’s simple and sweet, fun…
X: 1 & X: 2
X: 1 ~ Mix’s transcription is identical to an earlier one, "Kerr’s First Collection of Merry Melodies", page 26, tune No. 6
N: Originally transcribed in Kerr’s as 2/4, which for sanity’s sake and less ink reads better and less dense at 4/4
X: 2 ~ little difference, except no repeats given ~ "The Skye Collection", Keith Norman MacDonald, 1887, page 172
I also remember that it is in another book we have of tunes for American/New England contra dance, published in the U.S.A. ~ Ralph Sweet’s "Fifer’s Delight", 1965
