Portobello Hornpipe

An homage to the humble mushroom?
No, just one of the many things in Britain named similarly following the euphoria of the English naval victory at Portobelo in Panama in November 1739. See https://tunearch.org/wiki/Annotation:Portabello_Hornpipe

I especially like the first version I heard by Hemlock Cock & Bull on All Buttoned Up (1981). They included a number of tunes from William Irwin's tunebook on this LP and the later Eyes Closed and Rocking. Irwin was born in Keswick - a place I know well from the frequent holidays we had there when I was growing up on Tyneside - and quite a few of his tunes are named after places in the locality. Portabello is paired with Briggham, another hornpipe, on All Buttoned Up, Brigham (current spelling) being an area of Keswick.
