Mike Seeger, a fine player who has produced an instructional tape (with Homespun Tapes, but it doesn't seem to be available any more for some reason), when in concert introduced a tune he played on the trump (his preferred name for it) saying, "I'd like you to imagine along with me that I'm playing [whatever the tune name was]..." Seemed apropos to me!!
The latest issue (Autumn 2002) of English Dance and Song, the magazine of the English Folk Dance & Song Society, has an interesting article on the instrument.
