Trowie tune?

I am trying to trace a Shetland ‘trowie tune’ I learnt many years ago, and subsequently forgot, probably from the playing of Tom Anderson and Aly Bain - it had a strange name , something like ‘Winnebago’ or ‘Wikepedia’ [yes, really!!!]

I looked up Trowie tune and I think that the name originates from the Trow, a mischievous fairy or spirit that is in the folklore of the Orkney ans Shetland islands. So with that bit of information, I wish you good luck!

Yes - trows are the Shetland cousins of Norwegian trolls.
