WOODBINE COTTAGE. English, Jig or March (6/8 time). C Major (Clarke): D Major (Gibbons). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune appears in a few early 29th century English musicians' manuscript collections, including those of Joshua Gibbons (Lincolnshire) and William Clarke (Norfolk). Gibbons originally set the tune in the key of ‘C’ major in his manuscript. Not the Welsh "Wood-bine Cottage" AKA "Allt-y-Caethiwed."
