dear anon...the tune you posted above for "Steg Knetter'd at the Sneck Band"... isn't that one of those rare little things known as a 'Trip Jig'? These were written for dancers who had lost a limb in battle and were using crutches...it was considered a dubious honor to be asked to dance to one, as it usually resulted in further injury.
