Tune 478 - Uttoxeter Swing




To quote my chum Helena from whom I got this tune 'Erm… well, this is a tune and it might be from Uttoxeter. I’m afraid my inner folk pedant has failed me on this one and that’s pretty much all I know about this tune, except that is has been adopted by the border morris fraternity in these here parts. Sorry.'

  1. I've been trying to find out where this came from for months. Far as I can see it just appeared, fully formed, into the morris vacuum. Hunter's Moon are the earliest users I can find, but they have no idea where they got it from. Sometimes credited to the old Bessels Leigh side, but that's tosh. Great tune, though. I would love to kno the answer.
