I know quite a few Shetland tunes - but not this one. Is there a Shetland member of thesession who might know?

By the by, look at the fab "Da Day Dawn", very old tune traditionally played at New Year, so evocative of the sun rising at the start of the year and Shetlanders looking forward to the lengthening days after the long dark winter they have to endure!

Maybe there’s a Shetland music website you could look for.

Probably on the wrong forum

Yes, tune fragment doesn’t evoke Shetland somehow?

Finally tracked down this tune - it is an old Shetland tune ‘Land ta Lea’ and is referenced in Peter Cooke’s dissertation ‘The Traditional Music of the Shetland Islands’.

My abc has the wrong key, it should be in A major.

It was recorded by the Shetland fiddler Catriona Macdonald on her ‘Bold’ CD.
She learned it from an old archive recording.
