A tune that gets played at the Golden Guinea session, Bristol, UK when there are visitors from Cornwall in the pub. It’s a very simple tune, but they seem to appreciate it being played for them.
This tune is used to accompany a traditional processional dance through the streets of Helston (a town in Cornwall, UK) on 8th May each year. I believe that the town band normally play it in FMaj.
