The Besom Brush

I learned this tune from Fairweather Fiddler (another Brighton-based Session member). She notes that it was an old broom-sellers’ song that was first played as a 3/2 hornpipe and has now turned into a slip jig. We play it in a set with The Dusty Miller and Comb Your Hair and Curl It.
