Is This The Name?
This is the Tune, The Boys of the Lough play on their Album Good friends Good Music as Cadam Woods before the Bonnie Lass of Bon Accord. . The almost real Cadam Woods we find in The Session has nothing to do with that. Good to know the real name.
Aye this is the Duke of Perth. Begley and Cooney did it as a polka in the key of Amaj on the Meiteal album. Can’t remember what they called it.
Doesn’t this have words? Duke, duke, duke, duke of Perth, duke, duke, duke of … No?
Isn’t that the Earl’s Chair?
Or the Duke of Earl’s Chair?
The dance, and presumably the tune, is known as Broon’s Reel or Clean Peas Strae (straw)
Your presumption, I think, is incorrect. The dance was known by different names depending on which tune you used for it.
I think the title of the polka version TomR speaks of might be Dul dTí’s Na Ráiseanna, which I believe translates as "Going To The Races".
here’s the polka version: https://thesession.org/tunes/12839
A slightly different version, found in John Johnson’s Choice Collection of 200 Favorite Country Dances, London, vol. 8, 1758, nr 77.
In this source, the main title is Lord Rockingham’s Reel; alternative titles are Scampden’s Cade, Duke of Perth’s Reel, Broom’s Reel, Lolly Pops & Bull’s Eyes, Scamp(s)ton Cade.
Love In A Village
Don’t know anything much about this tune, it’s English and probably traditional, but is great to play and dance to🙂
Duke of Perth’s or Broom’s Reel. Pops up in lots of C19th collections, including Thomas Hardy’s tunebook.
