Re: Thief Lane

Nice tune Tom. Quick Google search brings up a place called Thief Lane in the UK, though, nothing about a jig.

Could you comment on one or more of: who the composer is, story of the name, and, if you’ve heard any recordings of it?

Re: Thief Lane

Hi, this is a tune we play in York, I’ll see if I can get a recording!

Re: Thief Lane

Thanks Tom. Curious if someone has it on an album.

Thief Lane, X:2

A different interpretation, mostly for the B Part. It feels natural for the fourth bar to return to a pause/lower note, so, this is one way to get there.
