We used to play this in a band in Liverpool. Just this evening I dredged it from my memory in a session in Lancashire and Andy Kenna told me it was Skeltons. I look it up and it’s been put on here TODAY!!! Spooky! It’s the same tune but I think the abc’s gone a bit awry. I’ll think about that tomorrow. Wonderful!


Isnt that the locomotive HP ?

huh? locomaotive?? ….
anyway, my teacher gave me this tune a long time ago when i first started with him but i have failed to play it regularly….. and it’s a shame as it’s a loovely tune…… in my opinion hornpipes arn’t played enough…….. enjoy!

(p.s. sorry! i tried my best with the abc but i’m not really used to it as i’m a true sheetmusic reader at heart! but it seems to me that the sheet music has turned out perfectly… so i dont think there was any problems with it….)
