One comment

I co-wrote this with a friend. It’s written for English concertina, hence the D#s, and makes a change from tunes like "The Musical Priest" and "Sweeny’s Buttermilk". For those with D#-unfriendly instruments, alternatives are below:
bar 1: |FB~B2 FB~B2|
bar 9: |FB~B2 ~f3f|
Also high C# (c’) ornaments can just be omitted, and if bars 19 and 20 are a problem they can be played like bars 27 and 28, an octave down.
The name looks as though it has a mining theme, but actually it’s just silly wordplay if you take the genre into account :->
