The Sunshine Hornpipe: from recollection this entered my inbox via the playing of Steve (Skip) Shipley a couple of years ago. (One of my favourite melodeon players). Good to have an excuse to blow the dust off, however gently.

All the best

Here's a dotted hornpipe from me, The Flying Dutchman.

It's one of James Hill's, the amazing 19th Century hornpipe writer from Tyneside.
Apologies to those local to Tyneside, as it's played with a Devonshire accent  ;)
cheers

Over enthusiastic as ever, 3 hornpipes here, all on the Albrecht Lilliput in G/C. I've recorded them as separate videos rather than trying to glue them together into one set...

Off to California - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7xrBR9PYdf0

Country Gardens - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ywX7DHCxwoo

Mr Gubbins' Bicycle - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WR9nDUMFjxc

The first one, I've already recorded (oops), but it's much better on the G/C than my original effort. Mr Gubbins' Bicycle is a John Kirkpatrick tune of course.

Cheers,

Clive

Thanks for posting those Clive, I think Off to California is my favourite. Particularly enjoyed that one, and the Albrecht Lilliput sounds fabulous!

Thanks Greg.
Yep, I too have enjoyed James Hill's tunes since being introduced to them during my early concertina workshops with Ali Anderson. He wrote some absolute stonking tunes!

Three for the price of one! Nicely done Clive.
I seem to recall Mr. Gubbin's Bicycle with a slightly different B part. Must be the folk prcoess. Nothing wrong with that.

Ok. I tried. First attempt at posting.
This was supposed to be Remember Me followed by the High Level as a James Hill double but I muffed the change.
In the editing I lost the last B music and found I'd uploaded it at the same time. I was starting to lose the will to live so I just left it.

Nice crisp playing, and I take it that's your Pariselle - which sounds great.

This is a great tune Pete; I've only heard it played on the small pipes up to now so delighted to see it done on melodeon, and your rendition is really good. Definitely inspired me to have a go at it. Incidentally, I think it's usually attributed to Robert Whinham, another North-East fiddler.

Thank you - you're quite probably right :-)

Thanks P&T and Ellisteph. It's a tune I know really well as it was my usual competition tune for smallpipes in the 70s.
I've played it in Morpeth, Alnwick, Newcasteton and a few others.
I should have looked it up to check who wrote it.

Here's two hornpipes.
Jack The Horse Courser's and Iron legs
Can you list the rest of the recording set up - what do the mics go into (desk into laptop external soundcard?)

Home studio: DAV BG-8 (8 channel) mic preamp, RME Multiface II (8 channels in, 8 out, external box connected to PCIe card) Full size PC running Ardour on Linux.
The mics in that recording are Royer R10 ribbons.
It's an acoustically treated room, with entire suspended ceiling of 100mm thick mineral wool with 100mm air gap above it, assorted bass traps around the walls and a diffuser on the wall behind where I'm sitting to play.
I record the video with a camcorder (currently Panasonic HC-V260) and use Kdenlive to edit the video and combine sound track with video, discarding the audio track from the camera.

Thanks. Do you have the laptop in the room with you - if so is there any fan noise?

It's not a laptop, it's an old fashioned desktop PC - actually a tower case on the floor under the desk. The case, an Antec P150, is designed for low noise. There are fans but they are all big and slow, hence very quiet, and there is some sound absorption under the desk to discourage reflection of fan noise into the room.
