After the Hare
Back to After the Hare
AFTER THE HARE. AKA and see "Eleventh of October," “Ugly Customer (An).” American, Reel. A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune appears to be of Irish provenance, printed in R.M. Levey's Dance Music of Ireland vol. 2 (1873) as "Eleventh of October". Nigel Gatherer notices similarities with the Scottish tune “Duchess of Atholl's Slipper (The)," and there is a first strain similarity, although it is perhaps incidental and not cognate. See note for "Ugly Customer (An)" for more.
