FRISKY JENNY. AKA - "Tenth of June (1) (The)." English, Country Dance Tune (cut time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The melody was printed by London music publisher John Young, heir to the Playford publishing concerns, in the Second Volume of the Dancing Master, in the 3rd and 4th editions of 1718 and 1728, respectively. "The Tenth of June" is given as an alternate title. The melody was entered into the music manuscript collection of London musician Thomas Hammersley around 1790 as "Tenth of June, or King of Sweedland." The latter name is a version of the name of one of the several variants of the tune, "Charles of Sweden." See also "Come Jolly Bacchus." See note for "annotation: First of August (The)" for more remarks on this tune and tune family.
