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.

Thanks, Mix.

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…
