Three own comps - nicholas (Session member)
I thought I would be so bold as to post three urls here of own compositions I have just uploaded onto YouTube. The inspiration catalysing these comes very much from time spent in and around the places they are named after, in the Pennine uplands of County Durham (NE England). But music comes from music, and my comps mostly derive from years of playing and listening to Irish, Northumbrian and Scottish trad, in particular. I don’t get them from the fairies! The tune Whitfield Brow is in C Major on its clip, as I thought it quite particularly suited to the Northumbrian pipes, but it’s in the Tunes section here in D.
The Youtubes are the following:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9I0q0qWgm4&t=13s (Killhope Top)
If any of these are seen to replicate (or as near as) tunes that are already out there, I had better take it on the chin…
These links are also entered on my Profile page, where tunes of mine in general can be found or located: https://thesession.org/members/27102
