Trip Over The Mountain

Fine album. Surprised it’s not already here.

Watkin Lees or Wattie to his pals is based on the West of Scotland (now living on one of islands, I believe). He is a fine Uillean piper and will be well known to those who used to frequent festivals such as Girvan, Newcastleton etc over the years. A thoroughly decent chap too. I’m sure Kenny will know him.

Lots of great, well played tunes here.

Mcdermott’s Reel No 4

I am having troubles with learning this tune, I cannot find it anywhere (the sheetmusic I mean). Does somebody know it with a different name? Cheers!

Track 11, first reel….

Hi - I haven’t seen Wattie in years, and don’t have his album, but I managed to hear the tune through “iTunes”.
It’s the tune above, which I posted some years ago, although the version I have is slightly different from Watties’, which is more common. If you look at the other “settings” below mine, you’ll probably find something closer to his version.

I most surely can work with that, thank you very much!
