Found a GREAT new source of tunes for us from Matt Coatsworth of Les Souris Dansent!  He has also played with Boldwood - so many 17th to 19th Century tunes.

English and French Folk Music - An Online Manuscript

Matt Coatsworth hasn't updated this site since 2012, would hate to lose all of these!

These are core melodies - many easy enough for beginners! 

More advanced fiddlers can embellish & develop these to make your own.
