Mrs Bakers

Another tune from the Joshua Jackson manuscripts of 1798 that I can’t find on here when searching by name or by key. It may be something else, however, since many of the names he used for tunes appear to be slight variations of, or unusual spellings for, what we might know them better as today.

Mrs Bakers

Can be found in Alexander MacGlashan’s 2nd Collection (Edinburgh 1781) as "Hornpipe, Danced by Aldridge’s" and in Aird’s 3rd Selection as "Miss Baker’s Hornpipe".

Version from Thompson’s Compleat Country Dances c.1770
