Re: Branches

I updated the tune listings based on Alan Snyder’s Cape Breton Fiddle Recording Index (cbfiddle.com). Very useful site for Cape Breton fiddling. It gives the key and approximation of the first line for those trying to learn tunes. I have found it quite accurate for those tunes I already know.
