Bamford Hornpipe

This tune is in Bb major rather than G minor, sorry. It is an English tune, not surprisingly from Bamford in north Derbyshire.

Bamford Hornpipe.

That’s a very elegant tune. When I saw the name I at once thought of Bamford, Derbyshire, and a weekend spent there with a mate, failing to catch trout in Ladybower Reservoir. Nice place.

What a lovely tune!
