That sounds crazy... Here in Washington, we usually play four tunes, going
back to "The High Caul Cap" one time at the end. We don't play an extra A
part at the start because that way we end the last time through the last B
part with the dancers. We usually play tunes like "The Dark Girl Dressed in
Blue," "St. Mary's," "The Rose Tree," "Farewell to Whisky," "The Mountain
Pathway," etc. We usually change from one tune to another when the dancers
do the clapping.
