michael sam wild Posted September 19, 2012 Share Posted September 19, 2012 The other week at Royal Concertinas at Dungworth, Neil Wayne brought along an old concertina tune book by Attack (I think). As we are in Yorkshire The Bradford Hornpipe caught my eye and Bill Crossland used his phone to take a pic and sent it me by email. I tried to put it up here but the response was that the file was too big. How can I get round that? On looking on Google there was a mention of a Lord Bradford's Hornpipe from the early 1800s. On Wikipedia it looks as though they were from Shropshire so John Kirkpatrick might be interested. As far as I can make out the tune , which was used as an exercise for triplets in D, looks and sounds a bit like Kershaw's HP so I may use it and keep it asThe Bradford HP not Lord Bradford's!! . I I must admit to doing that with tunes like Wentworth House and Sheffield Park both of which have other locations in Britain and The Worsborough HP is often known as The Gooseberry HP to ignorant folk.
