The Pigeon on the Gate / The Primrose Lass
[trad. arr. Brass Monkey]
These two tunes were played by Brass Monkey on their fourth album Going and Staying. The album’s sleeve notes said about them:
When Brass Monkey was still the trio of Carthy / Kirkpatrick / Evans, we put this step-dance tune of Scan Tester’s together with an Irish reel that Martin had once sung a song to. Dusted off for the historic moment when, briefly, we had two trombonists in the room at the same time.
