GET HER BO(O). AKA - "Kitty Bo-Bo." English, Dance Tune (3/4 time). England, Northumberland. D Mixolydian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABBCC. Appears in Vickers' original MS. as "Gett Hirr Boo" [1](?) in 6/8 time, although editor Matt Seattle thought the groupings were more logically 3/4 time. The tune title appears in Henry Robson's list of popular Northumbrian song and dance tunes, which he published c. 1800, while the tune appears (as "Kitty Bo-Bo") in the c. 1812 music manuscript collection of Northumbrian musician John Bell (1783-1864).
