WHITE HEAD CABAGES. AKA and see “Easter Tuesday (2).” English, Jig. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). The melody was printed by John Walsh in the Second Book of the Compleat Country Dancing Master (London, 1719), as “White Hard Cabages,” and again in Walsh’s 3rd edition of the same work (London, 1735 and 1749), under the corrected title “White Head Cabages.” It was also printed by John Young in his Second Volume of the Dancing Master [1], editions three and four (1718 and 1728, respectively) as "White Heart Cabages," with "Easter Tuesday" as an alternate title.
