Dads army Godiva episode folk dance tune

Post by colinm » Mon Jan 19, 2015 9:39 am

Could someone please identify the tune played on a concertina about 5 minutes into the episode. I have been asked to play it or something similar for the local amateur dramatics (fame at last ) . Iam not normally a folk music player.
You can find the tune if you put " Dads army godiva " into you tube

Its a 'Cotswold' Morris tune which I am sure somebody on melnet (linked to this forum) will be able to identify

That's 'Constant Billy' - a lovely tune when played well. (Pippa, thank you for linking the video!)
