A Trip To Galloway

A nice 3/4 air I found on The Boat Band’s album "A Trip To The Lakes", which comprises tunes played by past and present traditional musicians in the English Lake District.

Unfortunately their otherwise very informative sleeve-notes don’t include any gen about the actual tunes recorded. This one sounds like a Scottish tune or a dead ringer for one. For those who dwell far afield, Galloway is the South-Western bit of Scotland projecting towards Northern Ireland and separated from North-West England by the Solway Firth.

Trip To Galloway

One of those tunes, sad, yet uplifting all in the same piece. I got this from The Boat Band’s album as well, a real nice listen.

X: 2 & 3 (6/8) - "Trip To Galloway"

I’ve just managed to link this to another recording, unsure why it hadn’t linked previously:
"The Lakeland Fiddlers: One Big Fiddle" - track 12

From their notes: - Learnt by Carolyn (Francis - director of The Lakeland Fiddlers) from Greg Stephens and The Boat Band during a mellow Sunday morning workshop at the first Furness Traditions Festival in 1999. - Greg sourced it from "24 Country Dances for the Year 1784", W. Campbell, London.

X: 4 "Trip To Galloway No. 2"

S: "A Northern Lass: Traditional Dance Music of North-West England", compiled and edited by Jamie Knowles, Dave Mallinson Publications, West Yorkshire, 1995, page 10
ISBN: 1-899512-16-0

Note from this publication: "Trip to Galloway No. 2" is another version of a tune better known as "Money in Both Pockets".

"Trip To Galloway" - tune & country dance

I haven’t yet been able to access "24 Country Dances for the Year 1784", W. Campbell, London, as I would like to have added the dance description from that publication as well, and to have checked it’s transcription of the tune too. If anyone has access, please consider adding that here? ~ ‘c’
