The Sailor’s Rest, X:2

I’ve added The Albion Band’s version of Sailor’s Rest Hornpipe, from their 1984 album the Under The Rose. (Although the original is in F, I’ve transposed it to G, because G works better for sessions, and this is, after all, The Session). The album credits the tune to band member Phil Beer, so I’ve added him as composer.
