manx celtic music and dance

Bollan Bane (White Wort) - a melody associated with the herb worn on the Manx national day, Tynwald Day.

This tune was collected by AW Moore from 'Phillie the Desert', P Cain from West Baldwin in the 1890s and published in Manx Ballads and Music (1896), but also by WH Gill from the same source (see p. 27 Book D Clague Collection).
