Cheshire has no living tradition?
Well John Offord's recently republished fiddle tune book John Of The Green - The Cheshire Way should help put that right. It's a compiltion of tunes culled from old books and manuscripts up to around 1750, most of which seem to be in 3/2 or 9/4 and are very difficult and complex.
