The Humours Of Castle Bernard

This is in one of my tunebooks.Recorded at a session probably.Isn’t Castle Bernard in County Kerry?
.

Tribute to James Hill?

The A part has many Northumbrian similarities to the High Level Hornpipe.
The B part contains quotes from another James Hill hornpipe - The Locomotive

Hmmm… Barnard Castle is over Durham way …

nice tune. been playin it for years but don’t play it much in sessions, it’s kind of on the obscure end of the spectrum.
