The Bucket (The Buckette)

From the Vickers’ manuscript (1770s, North East England). I am not aware of any recordings. The manuscript (available online at FARNE) has the title "The Bucket", Matt Seattle’s published version (as "The Great Northern Tunebook") calls it "The Bucket".

I like the slippery turn linking the 2nd and 3rd bars.
