HEXHAM LASSES. English, Reel (cut time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The melody appears in the 1770 music manuscript collection of Northumbrian musician William Vickers [1], and the c. 1812 music manuscript collection of Northumbrian musician John Bell [2] (1783-1864). Researcher Matt Seattle beleives it may be related in the first strain to the Scottish reel "Bedding of the Bride (1)" (Bean na bàinnse).
