Ian Donaldson

From Derry - learnt of The Derry Hornpipe and The Belfast Hornpipe whilst at Queen’s. Now in my old age I’m learning to play these tunes of my youth on the piano. Present favourites are hornpipes - Belfast, Cork and Derry ones and a reel collected by a Chicago fireman known as The Handsome Plowboy - or over here in England - The Handsome Ploughboy.
