BUTCHER'S APRON, THE. AKA and see "Hot Broth," "Warm Broth." Irish, Reel. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB (O'Neill {1850}): AA'BB' (O'Neill {Krassen}). The tune appears to be a distanced version of Alexander McGlashan's Scottish strathspey "Delvin House (1)." William Bradbury Ryan gives the tune (in the key of 'C') as "Hobble the Boutches" in Ryan's Mammoth Collection (1883). Cumbrian musician John Rook entered it into his music manuscript collection under the title "Warm Broth."
