Because it's Irish? That's all I can come up with... Would love to hear
the story behind this.
All the sets I've ever fiddled for this dance have used the tune by the same
name; was surprised to look it up in Originally Ours and find that it calls
for something different (The Gadie Water!). I will continue to use Haste
to the Wedding (the tune) in spite of it being from the wrong country!
