Transcribed off the Traditional Music from London cd, currently my favorite album from the last three or four years of listening. Keep in mind that I’ve stuffed all sorts of little bits from different times through into this transcription. The transcription of the ending of the first part is what Lamond Gillespie is doing on the fiddle, the transcription of the ending of the second part is what John Blake is doing on the flute.
And if you haven’t heard this album yet, go and get it RIGHT NOW.
I can’t thank you enough, Zina. This is the one I’ve been thinking I really have to learn from the playing of John Blake and Lamond Gillespie. That’s certainly the most beautiful, polished, relaxed playing I’ve ever come across in commercial recordings. They do exactly what I really want to do and hear in real sessions.

"The Saratoga Hornpipe"
I, personally, not really in agreement with confusin’ but liking the correlation, think the two tunes are different enough to warrant their seperate identities, titles and places… I just wish the transcription for "The Saratoga Hornpipe" was better thought out and not the mess it is… 😏
