HINDLEY STEEL HORNPIPE. English, Hornpipe. England, Northumberland. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Composed by Robert Whinham (1814-1893), a musician, teacher, composer, dancing master and fiddler, originally from Morpeth. Graham Dixon (1995) discovers that Hindley Steel was a remote homestead farm near Wark Forest at Henshaw Common, Northumberland, north of the Roman Wall. It was the home in the 19th century of Tommy Armstrong, a piper and fiddler, whose manuscript recorded a number of Whinham's tunes.
