Tune of the Day: The Sportsman's Hornpipe

Traditional English tune

This tune is contained in the 19th-century manuscript of Joseph Kershaw, a fiddle player who lived in the area of Slackcote, Saddleworth, North West England. The tune is nowadays sometimes called “The Oldham Sportsman”, and unusually for a hornpipe, it is customarily played straight, without swing.
