The Green Ship

A tune that’s occasionally played at the University of Bristol Folk Club’s session at the Ship Inn, Bristol (UK).

I’ve transcribed it as a reel, but it might perhaps be better to think of it as an undotted hornpipe or a rant.

Re: The Green Ship

Originally in F.
It’s from John Winder ( Dancing Master) in the music of the Winder family of Wyresdale near Lancaster.
I couldn’t find any other versions but I love to know where it came from.. a song tune?
We play it more as a Hornpipe. Often in a set with Tom Fowler’s (aka Tom Ollins):Hornpipe.
