Welcome back all.

Here’s a tune I wrote a little while ago, but couldn’t find a satisfactory title for. I think Ian would have liked it, so it’s for him now.

I can’t find much information about the Yarker Manuscripts, other than they’re from Cumbria, 1797. They are full of tunes from the North East, North West and Scotland. There’s not a lot in there, but here are three jigs that I liked. Jacky and the Cow sounds very much like a song, but the only lyrics I can find were written 70 years later. The harmony part is from the Yarker MS and doesn’t necessarily work, but isn’t bad 😉
