The Whitchurch Hornpipe by Neil Brookes and Tony Weatherall

Summary

Neil Brookes: Fiddles and Flute.
Tony Weatherall: One-Row and Two-row Melodeons.

All the tunes on this album are to be found in a collection of tune books from North Shropshire. Some are dance tunes, whilst others have military connections from the time of the Napoleonic wars. Very few are found in other sources, and from their titles, many appear to be the work of local musicians. Four manuscripts bear the signatures of John Jones (dated1801), James Blackshaw (1837), Richard Hughes (1823) and Albert John Hughes (undated).
