Cliff Hornpipe, The
Garland dance, The
If you play Grandfather’s Polka, followed by Fanny Frail and the Cliff Hornpipe, then think about their relationship with Harvest home … you’ll start to get some idea of how the folk process changes and adapts tunes, and spreads them around Britain and Ireland in different related forms.
Look up the Cincinnati Hornpipe for a north American link.
Harliquin Air, The
Hunting the hare
A schottishe,that’s about all I know about it. I picked this up from dancing to Flowers and Frolics, or John Kirkpatrick, it’s all a bit vague.
This is a tune that doesn’t seem to be mentioned much (maybe not at all) online, though it obviously has some sort of link to the Linehope Lope / Glenbeigh Barndance family of tunes.

Malt Shovel Hornpipe, The

Learnt from a piano accordion player at the CovTrad session.
Written by James Hill Attributed to James Hill. Redesdale is a valley in Northumberland and an important (going back into antiquity) historical route between England and Scotland. It’s been speculated that this could have been the route by which James Hill travelled from Scotland to live in Northumberland.
These players play the tune differently to me, but much of what they do often appears as “variations” in my playing.
