Tune: The Four Hand Reel. (Click for Mid file)
The tune was collected from a fiddler called William Hocken by Richard Dimbleby, who made the recording at the Wellington Hotel in Boscastle in October 1943.247 (BBC Sound Archives). Arthur Biddick recalled that the tune was played at a lively speed by William Hocken, and Biddick encouraged dancers to maintain an equally lively speed.
Bars 17 - 32 have been written and added to the arrangement shown here for the sake of variety rather than repeating the tune again for the second part of the dance.
