Bang Up (Hornpipe)

This is played by Paul Sartin on the CD ‘Hampshire Dance Tunes’ which is a collection of recordings from the Pyle family manuscript (1822). The liner notes say it is also published in Townsend "1st Collection of English Country Dances".

I live in Hampshire and come from a naval family, so I find a Hampshire Hornpipe very pleasing.
