This is our version of the tune “Princess Beatrice” which can be found in the Flowers of Scottish Melody collection.

Django Reinhardt recorded this tune in 1937 which is based on an old Gypsy melody called “Muri wachsella an u seenelo weesch.”

Singles are a type of traditional dance tune unique to Newfoundland but similar to a fast Irish polka. The first one in this set comes from Bay de Verde fiddler Kevin Broderick and the second is called “Ike Power’s.”
