Another 3/2! I got this one from, um, my own manuscript, and can’t remember when or why it’s there. It was probably a good few years ago and shortly after Boldwood recorded a version, so I expect it was doing the rounds in Oxford’s sessions.
A modern one today, written by Colin Cotter (not Laurel Swift, Internet research doesn’t make this clear: apologies for any misattribution) of the Gloworms. Battered Hake will go nicely with the Buttered Peas from yesterday (that’s both a set and a serving suggestion).
Sometimes you just want a good old-fashioned Morris tune.
Thomas Hardy (for it is his manuscript from which I got this) describes this as being from “Tekeli”, which is a play about Imre Thököly.
This jig goes to a song about a drummer boy in the War of the Spanish Succession at the beginning of the 18th century. To be honest I really know it from that other classic song, Burning Bridges by Status Quo.
Another from William Winter’s collection, Morris Oxford was going to use this as the instrumental break in a song but ultimately went with something else.
