Horse's Brawl

I joined friends at a local tavern last night to eavesdrop on Mythago's last music practice before we heave our carcases off to the massive Medieval Festival happening this coming weekend at Tewkesbury. Fortunately Mr GBT opted to drive as he wanted a clear head for playing, so I was able to enjoy a couple of halves of the guest ales they had on as an added bonus.

This is a familiar tune, but one which I have never heard the side play before. It's a 16th century tune called Horse's Brawl which has an accompanying dance from the same period. Great fun if there's loads of you up and joining in. Thoroughly enjoyed hearing it again. I've popped up The Albion band's version for anyone who fancies a listen.

    1. It's rather fun isn't it. They have to play a lot slower if you're doing the dance that goes with it!
