Bob In The Wash House

Stan, a friend at Comhaltas mentioned this tune so I went out on the Internet to find it. Tune was on a WIKI - session experience but not any abc notation. I’ve just provided that missing link.

Tune has a nice confident stride about it.

Re: Bob In The Wash House

This is one of many tunes collected from old bush musicians in rural Australia. This one comes from Joe Cashmere, from Booligal NSW.

It’s not a reel. It’s a schottische, or maybe a hornpipe.
