Lads And Lasses
This is a catchy 3/2 I learnt in a session in Durham (UK). I believe it’s found in one of the earlier Northumbrian tune-books but I don’t know if it originated in this part of the world or elsewhere.
Lads and Lasses - Manuscript
Nicholas - FYI
The Henry Atkinson tunebook manuscript contains a tune called "Lads and Lasses", but the latter would appear to be quite a different tune.
Lada And Lasses.
I know there are two tunes of this name - the other’s a 2/4 or a 4/4, I forget which. Kuntz’s "Fiddler’s Companion" has entries for both tunes but only gives the music of the latter. He doesn’t specify the submitted tune as Northumbrian, but the person I learnt it from does. I may be wrong about it being in a Northumbrian MS, though. I don’t think there’s anything about the tune *itself* to locate it closely - 3/2s like this seem to have been played over England generally, with maybe a bias towards the North and especially the North-West.
Lads And Lasses, I meant above….
Not Lada, Trabant or Skoda and lasses…

This tune also appears as ‘Apollo and Daphne’ the third tune in the set ‘Glory of the Sun’ on the John Dipper and Luke Danisls CD ‘Sleeping Giants’ 2012.
