Back to Jockey (3)[edit]


JOCKEY [3]. English, Country Dance Tune (cut time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The melody was also entered into the c. 1785 music manuscript collection of John Greenwood (1760-1819), a gentleman amateur player of the flute or violin. The first strain of "Jockey (3)" is similar to, and perhaps cognate with, the first strain of William Sidney Mount's mid-19th century "Century Hornpipe."
