The Anvil. Composer: Ronnie Cooper

Somebody was asking for this one a while back. It’s transcribed here from the playing of Trevor Hunter at a workshop in Sheffield in the 1980’s.

There’s another (different) tune of the same name already on The Session.

The Anvil, X:2

Ryan Young and Craig Irving on Bandcamp. Can’t wait for the CD. Delicious and uplifting,

Re: The Anvil

Bit of background: notes on this tune in the collection of Ronnie Cooper’s tunes published by Iris Black and Kenny Cooper (2013) point out that The Anvil in question was that in the local smithy of Willie Hunter, Snr.
Further mention of the connection with the fiddle playing of both W. Hunters (father and son) in Nigel Gatherer’s comments at: https://thesession.org/tunes/18399.
