Newark Bay

This is composed by Jennifer Wrigley.
It is from the Wrigley sisters CD, Skyran.
It is played in the key of E.
To tough for me at this point in that key.
A really fun tune to play.
Here’s it in E for those who can:

Thanks a lot. I’m a big fan of them. Not so whistle- or flute-friendly, but I will probably manage.

It’s not actually hugely fiddle friendly either! Jennifer’s just an amazing fiddle player and I was lucky enough to be part of a workshop with her and Hazel. Hazel taught me the piano part to Dingleshowe Dancers and Jennifer taught us the violin part and then another tune called "The Twisting of the Rope"
