The Butcher's March - (slow)
00:00 / 00:00

I'd love to hear this fine tune played more often in our local sessions. Despite the title, this jig does well with lots of lilt and lift—don't play this grimly as if for soldiers trudging off to battle! To my ear it sounds closely related to The Lark's March. Anyone? Anyone?
