Yes Brian, the version in your clip is the one that's usually sung at The Cumberland Arms in Byker.

The singer's introductory patter mentions George Welch - another regular at the Cumberland - as the source. I think that George may even have composed this beautiful tune. If so, then well done George. (BTW, George is a brilliant guitarist, but his riffs are hard to steal because he's left-handed.)

Wassail!
