CURDS AND CREAM. English, Jig. A Mixolydian (?). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The melody appears in the 1770 music manuscript copybook of Northumbrian musician William Vickers, about whom little is known. Vickers set the tune in in the key of 'A', but this appears to be a mistake. A Mixolydian or A Dorian would seem to be likely instead.
