The Captain’s

This is a Northumbrian piper’s tune. I’ve just dragged it over from folktunefinder.com. So, I can’t vouch for its accuracy. But this is evidently from the Alnwick Piper’s Club Collection, so must be pretty authentic.
I myself prefer citternist Gerald Trimble’s slightly more chromatic setting, probably cause I heard that version first. I"ll post it shortly.
