Alex Francis MacKay

This a Dougie MacDonald tune. It is named after the late Cape Breton fiddler, Alex Francis MacKay. Dougie lived near Alex Francis, with his style and music influencing Dougie. Found here. http://cranfordpub.com/dougie/tunes/AlexFrancisMacKay%27s.htm Paul Cranford has a slightly different version. Paul says "This is a new tune which has yet to be recorded or published in printed form. Dougie grew up a couple miles down the road from Alex Francis MacKay." When I first was learning this tune, the setting found in the link didn’t feel "right", so I changed it up a little, making it more to my liking, and making it feel more natural.
