LITTLE FLORRIE. AKA and see "Little Hennie." English, Hornpipe. England, Northumberland. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABBCC. Composed by Robert Whinham [1] (1814-1893), a musician, teacher, composer, dancing master and fiddler, originally from Morpeth, Northumberland. Graham Dixon (1995) believes the "Little Hennie" title in the Charlton Memorial publication was a misinterpretation of Whinham's "Little Florrie" owing to the florid sytle of writing in the original manuscript the tune was copied from. Other that the title, both versions are musically identical.
