Beautiful tune, David. Is it what you'd call a Northumbrian tune? I mean, it's been composed by someone from there, but is it also in the trad. Northumbrian style?

Kathryn is steeped in the Northumbrian tradition. Not only is she a superb piper, but also a fine fiddler as well. This tune while modern has a definite feel of a Northumbrian tune

To me it invokes the High moorland of the North of England - the best place in the world to be :D

I'm not biased, of course. :lol:

I'm seriously biased, and I agree! Why, I was hobnobbing around Pendle just the week before last. Grand, and I love the way some of those northern tunes are so redolent of the high hills. Uncanny. And so many Northumbrian tunes sit very well on the harmonica too! :)
