Music

Thomas Hardy, writer and poet, was also a musician. He played the fiddle, following the tradition of his father, grandfather and uncle who all played in the church band at Stinsford, just outside Dorchester. As well as playing church music they also played around the area for dances and other local festivities. This is one of tunes from the 300 or more tunes in their collection.
