I'm not familiar with it. JC's Tune Finder has a song called "Little Musgrave and Lady Barnard." Search for that and listen to it. is that it?

Whatever became of the Oral Tradition? The thing to do would be to put the record on and play along by ear. After 11 minutes (or however long it is) you should have it, pretty much, saving the little instrumental at the end which might prove a little more difficult.

That last link didn't work out, probably since it was a tmp file

So here's the abc from there:

We still don't know if that's the right tune. Guest, where art thou?

Sublime Ashtray, you are making at least four assumptions.
1)Guest has a recording.

2)Guest plays an instrument

3) Guest has the skill to find the key and duplicate the tune. This is esp hard with fast dance tunes.

4) No additional musicians are involved.

Leeneia - my At Least Four Assumptions are entirely consistent with the OP. What makes you think otherwise?

1) If they didn't have a recording - how would they know the song?

2) If they didn't play an instrument, why would they want the sheet music?

3) If they were skilled enough to sight read, then experience teaches me that playing by ear can come easy with but little practise. It's the Folk Way.

4) If additional musicians are involved then - the more the merrier really, although it might be odd to have more than one fiddler playing off the sheet music to so simple a wee thing as Little Musgrave, but nothing would surprise me in the folk world.

Whatever the 'right' tune might be, the one they want is the Plantxy version, which derives, I believe, from Nic Jones.

And if I wanted be called Sublime Astray, then that's the name I'd have chosen. A little respect goes a long way - even by Mudcat standards.

I didn't take it hard, L - just found it a bit cheap that's all, or purposefully condescending, perhaps? Anyhoo, I'm seriously thinking of changing my Mudcat handle to Bob Sacamano. What do you think?

Suibhne - of course what you call yourself is your own choice. That said, my ever since you started using your current nomenclature, my brain ALWAYS reads it a ASHTRAY. Nothing I seem able to do to prevent it...
Quack!
GtD.
