Tune of the Day: Shuter's Hornpipe

Traditional English hornpipe

The earliest known appearance of this tune is in William Vickers's 1770 Northumbrian music manuscript, where it is attributed to “Morgan”. It is one of four tunes in his large manuscript collection attributed to him, although the tune is not attributed to Morgan in any other publication.

This hornpipe was once quite well-known, but is not heard often today. It might be named after the 18th-century comic actor, Ned Shuter (1728–1776).
