    This lovely waltz was written by Kathryn Tickell, the great Northumbrian smallpiper. My recording on mandolin and tenor guitar is based on a transcription from Paul Hardy's session tunebook:

    Brafferton is a tiny village in County Durham, near Darlington. Its main claim to fame is that the original "Durham Ox" was bred there.

    Lovely waltz, Martin, and well performed. While playing through the music I stumbled over the “Durham Ox” in box 7 of the B part. Hope it is tameable…

    Very nice recording, Martin! With the temperatures being as high as they are at the moment, I looked for somthing not too difficult and found this tune in Paul Hardy's tunebook. But there are some places, that are a little tricky in the key of G, so I transposed it to A:
