Welcome to COLIN BRADFORD's website for NORTHUMBRIAN MUSIC
In the past
Over the years this website has been the home of lots of web pages about my interests in Northumbrian music.
Some of those pages have long since disappeared but many can still be found (albeit mostly out-of-date) in the Bands section
Nowadays - Work in progress
My current reason for running this website is to document the tunes and arrangements that I have written over the last fifty years.
If you go to the Tunes section you'll find a gradually increasing collection of jigs, reels, rants, hornpipes, waltzes and slow airs.
Some were written to fill gaps in band sets - and some as teaching material. Some are tributes to family and friends - and some were written just for fun.
I hope there'll be at least a few in there that you'll enjoy playing.
NB: This is very much in the early development stage so there are lots of gaps and discrepancies.
You'll find tunes sorted by name and also by rhythm.
As I find them in my archive, this is where I'll put photographs and memorabilia on:
