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.'
