I’ll Get Wedded in My Auld Claues
Also known as the Hexham Quadrille
A useful tune in any band’s repertoire as its a 48bar Jig. Its firmly part of the Northumbrian cannon but its probably mpore properly called a borders tune.
The Angels of the North cross traditions and link it with the Ship in Full Sail. its a good lively set
On richard thompson’s _strict tempo_
this jig is on richard thompson’s old _strict tempo_ album, but he calls it ‘the random jig’. by any name a sweet track. that album is indispensible to me. thanks to dow for clearing up my confusion.
GIF is not useable…
The GIF image for this tune comes up black. It is readable in the window here, but the download version is black on black, and even copying the visible one comes up with a black on black version. Any help?
Works for me…
The download opens fine for me. So, the problem may lie in your computer. As an alternative, copy the ABC version of the tune and plug it into concertina.net, which generate a PDF of the sheet music for you.
Best of luck!
Adding chords, slightly different from those found in the Robin Williamson book.
The title of this one is (almost) the old Tyneside title of My Wife’s A Wanton Wee Thing.
Hexham Quadrille - Random
I haven;t got Richard Thompson’s strict tempo to hand but would note that Random Notes is a completely separate 48 bar jig to the hexham Quadrille/I’ll get wedded in my auld claes. I believe Random Notes is a james Hill tune and the Angels of the North pair it with robert topliffe’s 48 bar version of Elsie marlie which is rarely played elsewhere.
