“The North Star Hornpipe” K: Bb
I’ll have to digitize Winston ‘Scotty’ Fitzgerald’s take on this so I can add that transcription, a recording of ours that is currently unavailable. As I promised I’d add this one I’ve give it with some of the fun I have with it, but not far from the bare bones takes you can find elsewhere. I’ll also give one of those before adding a D wind instrument friendly take on it.

X: 3 & 4 ~ in G major
There’s no reason you can’t play it in G Major, but with that same fingering but on an F woodwind and you’ll have it in Bb…
could you find a song called Austin’s Planxty? It is on a cd but we can’t find the music. Thank you,
