We were out rambling around in the Wild West (Scottsdale, Arizona, Goldfield, 
Tortilla Flats, superstition Mountains, etc.) and didn't get new tunes for June 
brides up at http://www.kitchenmusician.com until today.  Just as well. They 
are of questionable value for weddings.

"The Bedding of the Bride" is a Scottish dance tune from the Collection of 
Captain Simon Fraser.  According to Fraser, it is to be played for the wedding 
guests to dance at the post-nuptual festivities. And the title does not refer 
to the sheets and pillowcases given as wedding presents.

"My Wife's a Wanton Wee Thing" is a jig and a song from Scottish poet (and 
sometime fiddler) Robert Burns.  It might be called a lament by a henpecked 

If anyone on the list is going to the Jink & Diddle Scottish Fiddle School, the 
music for this year is also on the website.
