Anahata: Ah that makes sense.
I first heard it and then learnt it from Old Swan's 'No Reels' when Rod was the leading light and box player, and sounds like he might be the source of the confusion.

I think I'm starting to get most of the notes in roughly the right order...... sometimes!

I reckon that my submission for April's ThOTM can be recycled for May too:

The Blacktown Jig is a fairly recent composition by the late Ray Schloeffel. Its named after a Sydney (Australia) suburb that was home to the Darug nation for tens of thousands of years.

I was trying to think of what to do, and then the mention of Orange in Bloom reminded me of the schottishe Orange B.  I learnt it when I lived in Milton Keynes but I have no idea who wrote it or where it comes from, so any information would be gratefully received!

Thanks Roger, it was my Bb/Eb Liliput.  It's a red one so it sounds extra good :)

I hope I am allowed 2 bites at the cherry!  So here is Black Joke and Red Joke.  2 tunes I used to play often for the ceilidh dance Black Joke (or is it called Black Jack?)  If anyone knows where Red Joke comes from or who wrote it, I would love to know.

I'm not too sure where this is from. I learnt it from Ray at Morris and he learnt it from someone who learnt it from someone who learnt it from the Bursledon Village Band record. I've heard it said its french Canadian.

Various "Joaks"  date from the early 18C when they were associated with songs written for grown up schoolboys to snigger at.
I am not certain if this includes every shade around, but I seem to remember coming across (ooer madam) a red one in an old manuscript.

Andy Hornsby's excellent Wynders of Wyresdale gives  a version of the Black Joak from Charley Coffey's "The Beggar's Wedding" (1728).

I don't think he'll mind me sharing a taster of it with you, just to give the idea. His book is highly recommended:

"A wee black thing,
It sat on a cushion,
Was hairy without and toothless within.

"Wi' her black joak and belly so white.

"A piper and twa little drummers came there,
To play with the wee thing, well covered in hair
The piper went in and he jiggled about
The twa little drummers stood ruffling about......!

Greg: must have a listen sometime!

Bill:  A great tune thanks for that.
I remember it was last played by friends in the pub after morris in a small village close to Exeter, *Silverton, Devon*
Seems an appropriate tune for me to put on the 'to learn' list!

My 'colour' tune - from the John Clare manuscript, the Red Pettycoat hornpipe. I found this a bit tricky to learn but now pleased I persevered. One slight difference to the version printed in George Deacon's book is a high A near the end of the A part; I was familiar with this tune via my good friend Neil Brookes fiddle playing - he uses a high A there so I just followed suit for when we play together. He's not sure where this high note came from now but it sounds good so we'll just keep it like that.
