The Grower

"Cross The Line opens with a stirring tune set, The Dragon. For some reason, the opening melody in this set of three, The Grower, is so named because it took Kirsten Harvey some time to convince the rest of the band of its merits." From: http://www.folkradio.co.uk/2016/10/fara-cross-the-line/

Re: The Grower

Shouldn’t this be a hornpipe?

Re: The Grower

Why does the B part include those A sharps, when the key signature makes all the Bs flat anyway? Is this an odd way of notating it, or have I misunderstood something?

Re: The Grower

I took the first version and brought it close to the version I heard from the playing of Fara.
