Up The River

New England traditional jig.

Couldn’t find much more than that on this tune (info nor recordings), but it sounds nice so here it is.

Up The River, X:2

A setting in Cmaj with variations on the melody.

The site automatically linked this tune to one of the Portland CDs, in a set with Sean Ryan’s "The Castle". Not sure which key they play it in.
