Old Molly Oxford


Old Molly Oxford

Old Molly Oxford is one of the great fiddle tunes – unusual, catchy and exploiting the sonority of the fiddle to the fullest. Also known as ‘Step Back,’ you will find this tune played in English sessions as well as further afield by those who enjoy something a bit quirky! The melody is presented at two speeds as well as together with a chordal accompaniment and with both chords and harmony.
