Set C16: Muckin' Aboot
Muckin' o' Geordie's Byre/Drummond Castle/Jeanie's Blue Een

Muckin' Aboot

This set is part of the following collections:

Three standard Scots jigs. The title The Muckin' o' Geordie's Byre has been attached to two or three tunes in history, but the jig here is what is most played now. There was a song of the same name written to the tune during the mid-20th century bothy ballad revival. Drummond Castle is just outside Crieff.
