Mr Spiggott’s Maggot

mr spiggott's maggot (2)

A tune which was meant to be in the style of a Playford 3/2 hornpipe but came out sounding like a Swedish slängpolska. When a cellist you know has a unicycle called Mr Spiggott, a tune is the inevitable result!

Hear it here, played on nyckelharpa, with Nerys Gross on cello: Mr Spiggott’s Maggot
