Rowley Burn

By Forster Charlton. Transcribed from the NSPipes playing of Joe Hutton.

I love it!!!!!!!!!!! Kinda’ has a happy-go-lucky kinda’ feel to it.
Oh, and, dy’ya’ be havin’ any idee were the name comes from.

Rowley Burn is a stream in Hexhamshire, South Northumberland. Funnily enough it’s only a few metres down the road from Stefan Sobell’s workshop. The countryside round there is gorgeous - nice for a drive on the narrow winding roads and maybe a picnic, especially if the sun is shining and it’s a nice day.

Beautiful Northumbrian hornpipe, deserves to travel. Glad it’s made it into the Tunes list.
