John Moulden Freeze Bitches / Friar's Breeches? (11) RE: Freeze Bitches / Friar's Breeches? 23 Feb 00


This is a frequent confusion - there is a five part jig - usually and probably originally known as the Frieze Britches. The first two parts are used as the tune of the Irish language song Cunla. By a process of mishearing it is known often as the Friar's Britches - so often that some young people in the sixties (of whom I was one) called it, among themselves - the Vicar's Knickers.
