Re: Traditional Dance Tunes

The Hollow Rocks were one of the first fiddle albums I bought.
Later, became a big fan of the Ramblers. Have the first copy sold of
"Twisted Laurel" (autographed by them @ Godfrey Daniels, Bethlehem, Pa
USA. Thanks for the reminder !

Re: Traditional Dance Tunes

"Hop Light Ladies" is the well-known tune (prob.by Niel Gow) "Mrs Macleod of Raasay", here played fast and very pleasantly by this band. At least one other Scottish tune on this album which I can recommend as an excellent band for dancing to. The band was playing in the late 1960s and I think the cd is a reissue (I bought it from a shelf of discontinued cds from the Library of Birmingham about 2 years ago). I have enjoyed listening to this band and am sorry that in the 21st century they are no longer playing together!
