ComhaltasLive #252 - 5: Flute Solo by Peter Horan

A concert flute solo by well known Sligo musican Peter Horan - who incidentally was a guest this year at the Comhaltas North American Convention in New Jersey. Peter plays an old two-part version of “The High Level Hornpipe”, normally played as a three-part. The tune was reputedly composed in the nineteenth century by Newcastle, England fiddler James Hill. Anyone have other information on this tune?

He was recorded at the Comhaltas Regional Resource Centre in Gurteen, Co. Sligo.
