Rob - the Plantation was old, the gals were in full bloom!

Thank you for the clarification.  That somehow makes the tune much more appealing.

This is awesome, I have this ...somewhere but never set down and tried to hash it out. Sounds great! just in case I can't find it, where did you pull this from?

Nicholas, It's found in James Aird's collection, but was also reprinted in that book on colonial dance that you have. Cheers, Mark

I want to mention as well how much your boot percussion adds spice to this, Mark.  It drives home that this is a dance tune, and really brings it to life.

That's actually a bodhran!

Ok, I'm batting zero here!- I thought it was your gourd banjo and your foot!  lolol...

In any case, it sounds wonderful, I love it!!
