i learnt this from Oxford fiddler Ed Pritchard. apparently common in Oxford sessions, but i couldn’t find much information about it online.

Will’s Way

Last night at an English session at The Barrel Inn in Thornbury, Gloucestershire, in celebration of the happy couple about to be married (now today the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge), we played “Bonnie Kate” - the English version - and “Will’s Way”.
