Mr Preston’s Hornpipe

[trad. arr. Eliza Carthy & Martin Green]

Played by Eliza Carthy and Martin Green on their album Dinner. Eliza Carthy said in the record’s sleeve notes:

Mr Preston’s Hornpipe, Daniel Wright’s Hornpipe, A Bagpipe Hornpipe, Jack Warrel’s Hornpipe, and the Presbyterian Hornpipe all come from my much-thumbed copy of John Offord’s John of the Greeny Cheshire Way, which is now sadly deleted, but you can find the whole thing in ABC format on the internet. Many thanks to Steve Bliven who is the net custodian and kindly provided me with the text.
