Again, from Kathryn Tickell’s Debateable Lands (and hopefully the default note is correct as quaver)
Better second time around, eh? ~ now you’ve squeezed the jig out of it… 😉
I believe the Kate in question is Catherine Cookson, the prolific and much-read novelist, who died in 1998. She was born in South Shields in 1906 and wrote out of her experience of growing up there. The tune may have been composed when Cookson died, as it appeared on the album "Debateable Lands" in 2000.
It is also on the Folkestra album "Suspended Slip Jig"
