This hornpipe was recorded by the famous Welsh Harpist Nansi Richards . I believe she learned it from the Welsh Romany families Roberts and Woods who she hung out with back in the time….in her Montgomery house, but I am happy to stand corrected by those who know more than me.
I like to play it straight and love the upstrokes in the second bar which tend to make me speed up …… more discipline needed.
Pibddawns ………say………. peeb..thownss (th as in THe not thin)
Abertawe ………say…………Aber tah. weh
Sounds like the same stock as Moving Cloud
PS That’s from someone who knows less than you.
This looks like a version of the Cliffs Hornpipe.
