Nantwich Fair

This is an English tune from my home county which I learnt quite while back from my old violin teacher. It is named after an event that takes place in a town which neighbours my own. I hope people don’t mind me posting an English tune to the website, especially considering it’s my first ever submission. I hope you like it! :-)

Cheerful tune!

Re: Nantwich Fair

Yes, a good tune. A friend brought it to one of our sessions under the older name of Namptwich Fair. Was delighted, as we used to live in Nantwich back in the 70s!
