A tune transcribed from Somerset fiddler and traveling knife-grinder Henry Cave by Cecil Sharp at Midsomer Norton in 1907. Given the nominal title ‘Country Dance’ in his notebook, this tune is identifiable as Cave’s version of the Bath Road Hornpipe. Unavoidably listed here as a ‘polka’ to match Sharp’s specific transcription of the tune in 2/4 time signature and not the more usual 4/4 for a hornpipe.
