Another excursion into my favourite time signature.
Another slip jig that doesn’t just sound like someone needed three extra notes in a normal jig.
The first request tune (I haven’t learned the other, which requires counting to five). Another from William Winter.
This is from the William Winter collection, and in my copy I’ve written “Barney Brallaghan” next to the title. That looks to be the same tune, usually played in D.
By Jan Hruby. The dots for this one were handed out by Paul Hutchinson at his workshop, it’s about time I made some use of them.
Staying in three time for the mo.
A Welsh song, translated into English minus the words for use in an Adderbury Morris dance. Jenny Jones became the “pride of Llangollen” by walking to London to buy a bible. So clear was her example of religious piety, there’s a pub named after her in the town now.
Roxburgh Castle was built by David I of Scotland but has been on both sides of the border (it’s in Scotland again now).
It didn’t taste of lemons until they added the other three, to make 7-Up.
Another from Hardy.
