Breton No.1

Simple and lovely tune. It can be played in various keys. Found in the tune index at “The Wooden Flute Mailing List” page.

The Boys of St. Malo?

It does have something of The Boys of Malin about it.

Well spotted Creadur, Nice pun too!

Sounds like one of these ‘count down’ dance tunes from Haute-Bretagne, “J’ai dix petites poules” or something like that…
J’ai dix petits beurres pour manger à quatre-heure?

The second part is particularly attractive.
