Bonny Bonny Broome

musician/member name: Mark Gilston
Duration: 00:01:59
Mark Gilston plays an English country dance from John Playford's "English Dancing Master" (1651) on mountain dulcimer.
Bonny Bonny Broome is also a melody for the Scottish ballad, The Broom of the Cowdenknowes (Child 217) which was also first published in 1651. The song is about a shepherdess who is outcast when she becomes pregnant by a passing stranger. The father turns out to be a lord, and they marry, but she longs for her home back with the bonny bonny broom.
