Black Joak

There are so many variations of this tune that I don’t think I even ran out doing four different A parts and B parts. Of course they’re all Morris dances from different villages, so the differences are perhaps explained as the result of whatever buttons the inebriated concertina player happened to press on the day that Cecil Sharp came to town.

The tune originally comes from a song, though it’s not a particularly pleasant song.
