Biddy Early

Tune #946 in O’Neill’s 1001, a lovely modal hornpipe that I haven’t heard before. Posted here with bowings and triplets.

Biddy Early, X:2

And here’s a setting with bowings and triplets removed. And I BELIEVE this is the last tune I planned to add from O’Neill’s! Early this year, Jeremy made an off-hand request for folks to hop in and flesh out the Tunebooks section where tune IDs were missing. I’ve been intermittently adding ID #s (and tunes when missing from the DB) ever since.

Re: Biddy Early

I also have never heard this tune before but I agree that it is a lovely hornpipe;- instantly appealing. And yes, Ben, you do great work. Thanks.
