JANE OF BIDDLESTONE. English, Hornpipe. England, Northumberland. Composed by Borders Northumbrian piper Billy Pigg, who lived for a time in Biddlestone, a village in Northumberland. The tune honors one of the family members of John Armstrong of Carrick (1929-c. 1980), also a Northumbrian piper, from Elsdon. Pigg played with Armstrong and the latter's sister, Annie Snaith, in the group The Border Minstrels, joined in 1938 by Archie Dagg.
