This short instrumental originally formed part of the ‘Spring section’ of a quartet for acoustic guitar and strings. It was inspired by David Hockney’s paintings of trees in the East Riding of Yorkshire. Obviously it was longer then than the 59-second piece it is now, but the lightness of the music doesn’t suffer for its brevity here.

The three titular persons are: David Hockney (obvs), Robert Kirby (when you hear the strings, you'll know why) and Ivor Cutler. There’s a prize for anyone who can work out why Ivor is there – maybe wait until you've heard it before you start guessing!
