Subject: Origins: My Love is but a Lassi & The Dark Girl

We were playing a few tunes last night & I recorded these two:

'My Love is but a Lassie Yet' & 'The Dark Girl Dressed in Blue'

Kathleen Smyth Fiddling on the Causeway Coast.

Now I had always thought of these two tunes as being Scottish, but I understand that many people claim they are from the South of England, others the North of England & yet more think of them as Irish.

Does anyone here have the answer?

Cheers
Dick

No - but your "My Love is But a Lassie Yet" is a different tune from the one I know by that title. Maybe that's why there's some disagreement - people are talking about different tunes with the same title ... Anyway - good tunes!

Doesn't that title - "My Love is ... " - come from lyrics that Burns put to the (or a) tune?

That first tune is "Farewell to Whisky" by 18th century Scottish Fiddler Neil Gow.It is usually played as an air

There is an Irish tune called "My Love is a Lass", but I don't reacll it sounding like "My Love is bust a Lassie yet"

cheers- Julia
