"There is a James Hill tune called The West End, but this isn't it."

Hi Bill. Can you post the abc for James Hill's "West End" I would certainly like to amend my information if PK is incorrect.
Theo! I'm wondering now whether your dots are the same as Bill's tune. Unfortunately I'm not familiar with Michael Raven's book.

thanks

The music I have is in Pete Loud's Collection of Traditional Fiddle Tunes, p 1-10, titled "The West End", James Hill, Hornpipe. It is the same score as this tune on Session.org, and the Session.org ABC gives the same score as in the Pete Loud book.

Hope this helps.

Bill

Thanks Bill. It is quite different, isn't it. I think I prefer this as a hornpipe (dotted variety) more so than a rant.
Somehow I feel a little uneasy with refering to "West End" (now Kirk's Hornpipe), as noted by me from PK manuscript, as a Hornpipe because it is commonly played as a reel/rant and would never work as a Hornpipe of the dotted variety. I guess I shall have to get hold of Pete Loud's Collection of Fiddle Tunes and also Mike Raven's to see if they are the same.

Hello all

Thanks to you all for the comments etc for my videos on Youtube.  Apologies for the fact I wasn't aware that there was a quest to find out what tunes I was playing in them.  Thanks to Bill it's sorted now.  Any questions you have just ask.  I'm gonna have a look through the forums now that I am registered with the site.

You all have a great site here, glad to see the button boxes have good support!

Cheers guys

The dots are in my copy of Michael Reven's 1000 English Country Dance Tunes (P1610

Theo Thomas

What's the title there, and is the composer named?

No composer, title is "The West End".

My wife's morris team (New Esperance) have used this tune for many years (20?) for one of their (written) dances. slowed down a lot but played undotted.

They've always known it as "The West End" but of course they could be wrong...
