Whitefriars Hornpipe

I took this from "Waterson/Carthy-the Definitive Collection
Respect! Yo!
Thought I’d come across this oddball little tune in ABC format in some collections of English Country Dance Tunes somewhere on the web while I was searching for something else so it might be out there somewhere-however when I thought I’d like to learn it I couldn’t find it! So I decided to learn off the cd BY EAR! Do I hear applause? This is what my ears came up with. I find the A part particularly intruiging-it sems to somehow,sort of turn itself inside out-maybe its the effect of the extra bar. Anyway its a fun tune to play.

Re: Whitefriars

The tune also appears as track 3 on the album ‘Trans-Europe diatonique’, by John Kirkpatrick, Kepi Junkera and Riccardo Tesi (Silex Y225026), in a typically imaginative JK arrangement, but just titled ‘Hornpipe’.

Whitefriars, X:2

As played by Leveret. This is the setting you’ll generally hear in English sessions these days, in my experience.
