Of Course, Not a Hornpipe….

…but a South African “Kwela” tune. Confusion may have entered the picture when John Skelton recorded it with the House Band. Nice tune though, and well worth posting here. Thanks!

Very true

Yes, I suspected it wasn’t a traditional tune, but works as a great hornpipe for English ceilidhs, especially.

Re: Tom Hark

This tune, and the one after it on the House Band album, are both very nice and catchy. I had the melodies in my head after only two times of listening to it!
