The Young Black Cow

It’s played on the second Cattle Grid’s CD. Definitely not a Waltz it’s a slow air.
I got this version from Patrice Pellissier, piper and flute player from Rouen.
Dave Swarbrick played a tune with the same name. It seems very different to me.

https://youtu.be/y56pS6ZTD7M Dave Swarbricks version played live with Fairport Convention on Granada TV in 1981 . The tune starts at 2.14 is in Dm and has some subtle playing with a Bb F# and an Eb in the second part . Fun to play ,maybe someone can write the sheet music

Re: The Young Black Cow

I Just found a version of this tune in Roche’s collection volume 1.
