WELCOME TO YOUR FEET/FOOT AGAIN. AKA - "Your Welcome to Your Foot." AKA and see: "Bonny Lass wi' the Tocher," "Lady's Fancy (8)," "Mr. Foote's Favourite," "Stay and take the breiks with thee," "Stay and take your breeches wi' ye." Scottish (originally), Canadian; Reel or Strathspey. Canada, Cape Breton. C Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB (Gow): AAB (Glen, Kerr, Mackintosh): ABB' (Cranford, Honeyman): AABB (Bremner): AA'BB' (Athole). The tune appears in the Drummond Castle Manuscript (in the possession of the Earl of Ancaster at Drummond Castle), 1734, inscribed "A Collection of the best Highland Reels written by David Young, W.M. & Accomptant." John Glen (1891) finds it in Robert Bremner's A Collection of Scots Reel (1757), where it is set as a reel. Nathaniel Gow attributed the strathspey to John Riddle, although it has not been found in Riddle's printed collections. Multi-instrumentalist John Rook, of Waverton, near Wigton, Cumbria, entered a version of the melody in his large 1840 music collection as "Lady's Fancy."
