Sandy Is My Darling

"Sandy is My Darling is an 18th century Scottish reel which was popular amongst the last generation of Cape Breton fiddlers. It can be heard on Puirt a Baroque’s Kinloch’s Fantasy CD , on Dougie MacDonald’s A Miner or on Donald MacLellan’s Dusky Meadow." (http://www.cranfordpub.com/tunes/Scottish/SandyMyDarling.htm)

I learned this tune off of Dougie MacDonald’s CD "A Miner", as listed above. A fun tune, even more fun with the wild notes of the second setting, which give it more of a Mabou sound.
