This tune first appeared in Playford's collection of dance tunes 'Playford's Dancing Master', in 1695, simply called 'the Red House' and is also associated with a pub called The Red House in Cardiff. There is an area of Cardiff with several places named Tŷ Coch, including a nursing home, which is where I have placed this tune. The picture on the recording shows Castell Coch though, because thats a pretty building!
Its a steady dance in 4/4 and G major.
Live performance by Llantwit Major tuneclub as part of a one day Tunelines workshop as well as the duet with Abi Hammett and my playing of the tune itself
