Captain Conrad’s Hornpipe
This hornpipe composed by Jenny Walker is a lively piece, depicting a jolly sea dance on the deck of a pirate ship. Captain Conrad is fictitious and is portrayed as a cheeky chap. The middle section is a smoother, minor feel, depicting the rolling waves as the ship becomes unsteady.
