Re: Wat Ye Wha I Met The Streen

Once (18th C) quite a common tune, found under different names. In Oswald’s Caledonoan Pocket Companion (1747) it’s called "Coming Thro the Broom My Jo" in A dorian, likewise Bremner 1757. A more recent setting can be found here as "Turn Under Lea" as played by Shetland fiddler Gibbie Hutchison ( https://thesession.org/tunes/14189 ).
