[SCA-Dance] Trenchmore music?

Hi Tim,
On UTube, search for trenchmore.  The second video has music very similar to
the music that I use.

I looked at the videos and like the arming MUCH better than the bowing
sequence that I learned.  I think I will use the arming from now on.  The
bowing sequence just confused everyone and turned a fun dance into an
annoyance (which is why I often left out this bit).

Bowing in Trenchmore?  OK, we definitely have regional variation.  I think I
saw bowing in the Lovelace version.  The version I know is in the Terp
booklet, along the lines of
- double up and back x 2
- cast to bottom and back to top
- unders-and-overs
- reel
