Thread Name: Folklore: The Abbots Bromley Horn Dance
Subject: RE: Folklore: The Abbots Bromley Horn Dance
Also on that site of tunes that have been used for the Abbots Bromley Abbots Bromley Horn Dance is "another of Robinson's tunes - The Flaxley Green Dance."

Just about as strange a tune as the other "Robinson's Tune" - and in the same way. It sounds as if William (or Henry) Robinson in 1857 or so must have had a pretty interesting repertoire. I wonder if any of the other tunes he favoured have survived? (Or did he actually put them together himself?)
