MissouriMud Origin: Banks of the Dee - (morris) (5) RE: Origin: banks of the Dee - (morris) 05 Jun 06

I read somewhere that Banks of the Dee was written by John Tait, of Edinburgh, around 1775, adapting the tune from an Irish air called Langolee. Sounds close to what you have dug up. It's a lovely tune - although I think the original Langolee may have been more up tempo than the slower Banks.
