GUEST,Henry Piper (of Ottery) Tune Req: The Olive Branch (morris tune) (8) RE: Tune Req: The Olive Branch (morris tune) 27 Sep 18

I was a Morris musician and dancer for many years, and as far as I'm aware The olive Branch has never been collected as a name for a traditional Morris tune and does not appear in any of the recognized collections.
It is possible that the title "The Olive Branch" is the name the side use for the dance rather than the tune it is danced to, a not uncommon scenario in the Morris world. Have you tried contacting the Morris team concerned via there website or FB page if they have one and asking where they got the tune from??
