Max Johnson Thomas Hardy tune book (40) RE: Thomas Hardy tune book 02 Oct 11

I read somewhere that Hardy's 'party piece' at local dances was to play 'The Full Rigged Ship' on his fiddle. He always the same tune and, delightfully, it was often difficult to get him to stop.

It definitely referred to his playing the fiddle, not the viol, but whoever wrote it might simply have assumed it was the ubiquitous fiddle, of course.
