"I'm playing two tunes. The second tune is called Mount Hills and it comes from Playford's English Dancing Master, so a really old 17th century English dance tune. The reason I picked it is, before I was 14 I played almost solely Irish music, but when I heard this tune being played at the English Acoustic Collective Summer School as a teenager, I had a total epiphany and it is The Tune that made me fall in love with English music. And the first tune, Bagpipers, is kind of similar in a way. When I first heard it I thought it was one of the most beautiful tunes I'd ever heard. We started playing it with Leveret and it was one of the first things we ever played as a band and so it reminds me of how this band came together. So they are two enormously significant tunes for me."
