The Whitehaven Volunteer

Recommended Posts

This tune is associated with a volunteer unit from Whitehaven in Cumbria.  My Morris dance team, Dolphin Morris, uses it for a Fieldtown style stick dance that some sides call "Skirmish".  We used to dance it to the tune British Grenadier, but one of our long standing members, John Baxter, once mentioned that he liked this tune and it fitted the dance.  He has since sadly passed away, and now we use this tune almost exclusively for that dance, as a tribute to him.

lovely jolly tune, admirably steady playing as usual, and love the flashlights 😆

Thank you.  I'm fighting the habit of speeding up towards the end.  I didn't do too badly in this one.
