Waterman’s Hornpipe

[trad. arr. Brinsford, Carthy, Evans, Kirkpatrick, Williams]

This tune was played by Brass Monkey on their eponymous 1983 debut album Brass Monkey. This LP was re-released in 1993 as the first half of the CD The Complete Brass Monkey. The latter record’s sleeve notes said:

One of several unusual and compelling tunes taken from the playing of John Stickle, the Shetland fiddler, who was recorded in 1947 by Patrick Shuldham-Shaw. A selection of Stickle’s music was published in the Journal of the English Folk Dance and Song Society in 1968.
