Long Room at Scarborough

Nice 3 part slip jig from the north of England. It appears in a number of manuscripts including the Jackson m/s (1798) from Burton Leonard in North Yorkshire.

The first two parts of this tune appear in Peter Kennedy’s Traditional Dance Music of Britain and Ireland (Slip Jigs & Waltzes) under the title Miss Butler’s Fancy.
