Mo Vaka (My Mother)

My first upload, I learnt this lovely waltz from my Dad, who sadly past away last year. Presume it must be a Shetland Waltz but can give no other information on it I’m afraid.
An accordionist, he played by ear so never had any sheet music for it.
Hope you enjoy it.

Mo Mhàthair

Composition of Neil MacLean (Niall MacIllEathain) the "Govan Bard" (Bàrd Bhaile Ghobhainn) who came originally from Tobermory, and lived from 1895-1962. This song was recorded by Calum Kennedy, and is often associated with him.
Possibly here already. There are simpler settings floating around.

I never thought I’d be linking to this!

Very much in the "Gaelic Waltz" idiom, not Shetland.

Thanks Weejie for the info. Quite new to this site.

It doesn’t seem to be here already, so you’ve found a well played tune that isn’t in the database.
