Oyster Girl

Classic English stuff.I’m surprised thatyou let it in!!!!.
The Angelsof the North play this with the Seven Stars and Lamb Skinnet. What a great set it is. We useit with Duck for the Oyster, a phenomenal 18th Century circle dance that is still worth dancing most Saturdays.

Actually, that’s not quite how I play it. :-D I forgot something, and I don’t mean the ornaments and variations, I mean rhythmically ~
