“Not a lot of people know this……..” Re Train Journey North
I would have just added comments in the tune section but the tune in question isn’t there….
Pardon my ignorance but I assumed for many years that "The Train Journey North" was composed by the late Tom Anderson from Shetland.
In fact, it was a different Tom Anderson who is an Irish piper and the journey in question was actually between Dublin and Belfast. I’d assumed it was The North of Scotland.
This tune is very popular in Scotland and was included on the first Easy Club album and, of course, Jim Sutherland comes from Caithness. So, that’s probably why I was misled.
Any more info about this tune and composer would be very welcome.
