I have a couple of unidentified tune fragments from a N-W Morris 'medley'. No-one else

in the side seems to know what they are. Here is the ABC:

"D" F2 A2 AB AG | "D" F2 A2 A4 | "D" F2 A2 d2 e2 | "A" e6 |]

 

I tried 'profiling' 'em with no success. Can anyone identify them please?

 

Thank you.

X:1 I can’t help you with. X:2 sounds a lot like a French Canadian tune called “La Belle Catherine” (which, in turn, has a lot in common with “Oh, Do You Know the Muffin Man”). It goes like this:

Thank you for that! I tried 'musical profiling' with no luck, and waded through Lester Baileys

'Tune a Day' listing, also with no luck, so that's a start.

 

Thanks again for your help.

I alway look up on it as a delightful journey rather than a wade :rolleyes:

 

Sorry can't help with the tunes
