So far the LBPS has happily followed the Northumbrian Pipers Society in their choice of tune; for April they have chosen The Morpeth Rant; this is quite a challenge for Scottish pipers, and I'm quite happy to see submissions from LBPS pipers playing any tune with 'Rant' in the title.
However, I have located a version of the Morpeth Rant from Borders fiddler Tom Hughes, via 'Hardcore English', the wonderful compilation of English music by the late, much-missed, Barry Callaghan. It requires only minor modifications to become a nine-note tune and I'm working on it ....

To get me round the first bar of the B music that Tom plays [up to a high d and a downward scale] I've borrowed a bar from the more familiar 'new' tune, first published by Kerr ii his Merry Melodies. otherwise, with the exception of the 'ellided' bottom f#'s, this is Tom Hughes' version- well it was when I started...

Very nice playing and some grand footwork too.
