Tune of the Day: The Bee's Wing

Traditional hornpipe

This tune is commonly attributed to the 19th-century Gateshead (near Newcastle), northern England, composer James Hill, who was nicknamed the “Newcastle Paganini”. Named after a famous Newcastle racehorse, the “Bee’s Wing” has become in modern times one of the most popular Scottish fiddle hornpipes.
