The Gypsy Hornpipe / The Hawk / Indian Queen
[trad. arr. Eliza Carthy, Nancy Kerr & Ian Carr / James Hill arr. Eliza Carthy, Nancy Kerr & Ian Carr / trad. arr. Eliza Carthy, Nancy Kerr, Ian Carr & Saul Rose]
Eliza Carthy and Nancy Kerr played these tunes in 1995 on their second album, Shape of Scrape. This track was later included on their compilation On Reflection. They were accompanied by Saul Rose playing melodeon on Indian Queen and by Ian Carr playing guitar on The Hawk and Indian Queen.
Eliza Carthy commented in the Shape of Scrape sleeve notes:
The Gypsy Hornpipe comes from Lawrence Leadley: the Fiddler of Helperby presented by James Merryweather and Matt Seattle. The book is a wonder. (Thank you very much.)
Indian Queen is from Wm. Mittel, His Book, transcribed by Dave Roberts. And thank you too.
And Nancy Kerr wrote:
[The Hawk is] a James Hill tune learned from Northumbrian piper Ron Elliott, written originally as a hornpipe in E.
