Willy Taylor’s Jig

I have this written out on manuscript by a couple of different people, neither score with a proper name attached, but only a note saying that the tune was from the playing of Willy Taylor. Could be trad, but also sounds to me like it could be one of his compositions. If anyone has a name for it, please let me know.

A jolly rollicking number, I like it. It seems familiar, but then I like Will Taylor’s music. I did look around but nothing yet. I hope you find a name for it. Maybe the ‘Northumbrian’ contingent can help? Brave man for posting it… 😉

Don’t recognise it, but sounds in WT’s style from what little I’ve heard of it.

I’ve loosed the blood hounds on it and they are braying in the distance…

For the uninitiated ~ ‘Dow’ = ‘Noxious Blanket’…

#3470 above is “Willy Taylor’s Polka” ~ not a reel a typo…

Willy used to call this “Trad Jig”, I don’t think it’s one he wrote. It’s also called “Ann & Albert’s Silver Wedding” - does anyone know when it got that name / who wrote it?

That’s a good enough name for me. Thanks Pippa.
