|Title|| All on the Tongo Island. GS.054|
King of the Cannnibal Islands,aka. GS.054
Nottingham Swing,aka. GS.054
|Bibliography||Village Music project, Spencer, George|
|Notes|| CGP.I have difficulty quite often in assigning a "Rhythm" to a tune,|
and they end up as "miscellaneous" as in this case. The problem here is
that the tune is not used for a jig or a quadrille dance nowadays (if
ever) but is very strongly associated with the dance "Nottingham
Swing",a hop-step dance usually done to Schottisches or Spotty
Hornpipes eg Keel Row, Nae guid Luck(!a 6/8 tune).
