Set 44: The Campbells - jigs
Wha'll be King but Charlie?/The Campbells are Coming

Wha'll be King but Charlie?
This set is part of the following collections:


Wha'll Be King But Charlie was published in 1816 by Capt Simon Fraser, who noted that it was a tune we have in common with Ireland. There it is known as Behind the Bush in the Garden.

The Campbells Are Comin’ O-ho, O-ho! was a song from probably the early 18th century when John Campbell, Duke of Argyle, was made commander-in-chief of George I's forces in Scotland and contributed to its suppression.

This set and other tunes played at Scottish Sessions can be found in The Scottish Slow Session Volume 3, available from my Online Store.
