NORTHUMBERLAND LADY, THE. AKA and see "All Alive (1)," "Breeches Loose (2)," "Breeches Maker (The)," "I'll never gan to the dark cellar ne mair." English, Jig (6/8 time). England, Northumberland. G Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. As "Breeches Loose (2)" the jig was printed by London publishers Charles and Samuel Thompson in the mid-18th century, and later entered in the mid-19th century music manuscript (tune No. 177) of William Winter, a shoemaker and violin player who lived in West Bagborough in Somerset, southwest England. The melody appears in the 1770 music manuscript collection of Northumbrian musician William Vickers [1]. A nearly identical version was entered by Northumbrian musician John Bell (1783-1864) into his c. 1812 music manuscript as "I'll never gan to the dark cellar ne mair."
