Composed by Patricia Chaffe

Lovely Lovely March (not strathspey) by cape breton musician Patricia Chaffe. This is from JH collection of fiddle tunes but personally i prefer the version which is on this website:

http://www.geocities.com/gburke_wilson/Stella.gif

(not much difference but there is a bit).

P.S. Is much easier to learn than it looks.

Cheers Sam

Cheers, Sam. This is a great tune on the flute too. I love Iain MacDonald’s flute playing of it, and someone told me Cathal McConnell recorded it.

Correction of spelling of author’s name

Note, the author’s name is Patricia Chafe. She is, in addition to a fine composer and pianist, the daughter of famed Cape Breton fiddler, Winnie Chafe

Is it just me…

…or does anyone else think this sounds a lot like "The Leaving of Liverpool?"
