The Youngest Ancient Mariner

A beautiful tune from Phil Cunningham and I’m very surprised that it’s not up here already. More of an air than a waltz I’d say though. Sounds fantastic if you’ve got a bagpiper to join in after you’ve played it through once.

Good recommendation

Thanks for reminding me of this tune. I have seen it in his tunebook but never tried it. This time I have given it a go and as you say it is an impressive tune. Looking forward to introducing this to our session
