Learnt It By Ear!
You know stuff when you learn it by ear - ends up being a bit different - but hey! -thats the beauty of folk music!
Learnt this at my youth folk band (a kind of ceildh band).
Easy to onarment as well.
I think its from around where i live (ooh arr ooh arr - cider for me supper tonite!) you’ve geussed (if you live in england) Somerset! (after all we’re learning local tunes)!
I believe this is by Undine Hornby of the Committee/Late Night Band???? London I’m afraid.
i stand corrected he did write it
It looks like a jigified version of a Dm scottisch that’s in the Blowzabella tunebook (the first one) - or that is a schottischified version of this. I think it’s called the New French Scottische… but am not sure now. Sounds like this:
“The Plane Tree” - 4/4 - a la Blowzabella

Nice one birlibirdie, being well familiar and fond of the wood of this one, and its many musical uses…
