An Instrumentalist's Challenge ...

There am I on a Sunday afternoon idly exploring radio channels.
I accidentally discover a Radio 3 programme about folk music.

I become engaged by a melody.
"That was Packington's Pound," declares the announcer.

I explore the wonderful web-thing.
Here is that same tune performed by Julian Bream ...

Here's some sheet music ...

So .. who is up for a challenge?
I offer a prize of one groat to anyone who recognisably performs this piece at The City Folk Club ...

(I feel a new badge coming on!)

Now, what did I do with that bowed psaltery?!
