A friend recently gave me a copy of the Northumbrian Small Pipes 1st tune book. I had a copy already but this one was from a charity shop in Carlisle, Cumbria. He paid 20p for it, and it was in excellent condition. It is older than my new copy indicating that is has hardly been used/played, with a nice diagram on the back cover of the Northumbrian Small Pipe chanter and the notes it produces. The price is on ‘shillings’ and on the inside it is stated that it is produced in 1970, when I was 5 years old. Inside there are the same number of tunes listed.
