GUEST,Bruce O. Tune Req: Bonnie Susie Clelland (18) RE: Tune Req: Music for 'Bonnie Susie Clelland' 30 Apr 01


Motherwell was the first to collect it. Unfortunately he never kept track of things very well, and his manuscripts have the same song attributed to two different women. The tune of one (noted by Andrew Blaikie of Paisley) was published in his 'Minstrelsy", 1827, repeated in Bronson's 'Tradition Tunes of the Child Ballads", and I gave it as an ABC in the forum ) search it on 'Cleland'.

Andrew Blaikie collected another tune for it which Jack Campin located and made an ABC of it, which he posted on Scots-L, and I thought I gave it in this Forum but can't remember where.
