A little piece of Geordie (or rather Makem) baroque - not to be confused with Sunderland Lasses, a more earthy dancey 3/2 that is uncomfortably similar to Lads of Alnwick.
I quite like tuneslike this a listening pieces. I have heard it at least twice in sessions up here in the North-east of England but its hardly a regular occurence.
I like this tune too. It appears in a 3/2 set on "Scalene", an album by James Fagan, Nancy Kerr and her mother Sandra. On that recording it was mistakenly entitled Sunderland Lasses, which (as Noel says) is a different tune https://thesession.org/tunes/2796
