Re: Banbridge Town

Like all the best tunes, this one is uncomplicated but distinctive. I know it mainly as the melody to the song ‘Banks of Newfoundland’ (given in ‘The Singing Island’ collection: Ed. Peggy Seeger & Ewan MacColl, Mills Music, 1960). To my ear, it fits into that family of closely-related tunes that includes ‘The Star of the County Down’.
