Here’s another schottische named after a pub. In this case it’s The Cherry Tree in Steventon, Oxon. This was the home of the “mostly English” session, held on the 3rd Sunday of each month, from 2000 until 2017. However, when a new manager made the musicians feel unwanted they moved to The Plum Pudding in Milton, where they are made much more welcome.
I wrote this in 2013, it appears. Funny, I thought it was more recent than that! These days, Three Pressed Men usually follow this tune with The Nut Tree.
