England, Northumberland. C Major (most versions): B Major (Campbell). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. There are several different tunes that go by the title "The Frolic/Frolick." The present tune is a 4/4 version of the tune usually known as "Orange and Blue (1)," a reel, and "Orange and Blue (2)," a jig setting. John Glen (1891) finds the earliest appearance of the tune in print in Joshua Campbell's 1778 collection (p. 14), although it also appears in his 1789 collection (in the key of B Flat). The reel also appears in the music manuscript collection of London musician Thomas Hammersley (1790).
