The Hardy Sailor

I found this in Chris Green’s “The Musick Meeting”, of which I have the bagpipe edition. To avoid any accidents I safely moved it tone away from any bagpipe-friendly keys (though into the natural ambit of the trumpet). The tune is so close to being “hornpipe by numbers” that I had to stop recording on a number of occasions when I found I’d switched to playing a different tune partway through.

By the way, do you want an opportunity to play these tunes and others like them? The first Odds Bodkins English Session is a week from today, in the Virgins and Castle at Kenilworth. Tina and I from Morris Oxford will be happy to welcome you, your tunes, and your songs (traditional or popular, with an emphasis on the English repertoire) from 8pm.
