Attingham Waltz

This was written by Helena Torpy and I learnt this a couple of years ago. It is one of the first folk tunes I learnt on fiddle - much thanks to a nice girl called Sarah who took the time and trouble to teach it to someone who was very very nervous having not played fiddle in front of anyone except teachers and examiners!

Learnt this through the amazing Phillip Henry on the dobro

Attingham, X:2

Many years ago I had a request to play this tune at a wedding with the groom who provide the music in the key of ‘D’

I have had to fiddle with he ABC in order to get a 3/4 notation. The one here in ‘G’ looks like a jig which I’m afraid I find confusing.
My own abc is as follows:-

X: 1
T: Attingham Waltz
R: Waltz
M: 3/4
L: 1/4
K: D
F2 G | A2 d | c2 d | B2 c | A3 | G2 F | E2 D | F/D/- D2 | E>F G | E3 |
F2 G | A2 d | c2 d | B2 c | A3 | G2 F | E2 D | B,/D/- D2 | D3 :||
A>B c |d>c d | e2 d | f>e d | G3 | F/A/-A d | B2 A | G2 F | E>F G | E3 |
F>E F | G>F G | A B c | B2 c | d3 | G2 F | E2 D | B,/D/- D | D3 :||

It’s a lovely tune but I rarely play it. I think I will have to present it at a few sessions.
I’ve recently found it as a song sung in Swedish.

Re: Attingham

I’m curious at the name: we used to live in Shropshire, England, where there is Attingham House and Park, currently managed by The National Trust: never heard of any other Attinghams!
