Hornpipes Workshop with Chris Partington and Johnny Adams 3 November 2018

Our “Moving On” Workshop on┬áSaturday 3 November on the topic of “Hornpipes” was an informative and enjoyable day. Expertly guided by master fiddlers Chris Partington and John Adams – the Sultans of English Hornpipe – we learnt about the origins of the Hornpipe as a tune and how the linked with hornpipe dances.

We went away having learnt a good few new hornpipes (new to us, that is, the tunes themselves dated back to the 18th Century), loads of music and reference material, all on a CD.
