Re: Shetland Fiddlers

I found a copy of this album while clearing out my grandparents house last weekend.

It’s of particular interest to me, as Willie Barclay Henderson was married to my great granny’s sister, and I met his son John (aka John o’ Gloop, cracking name) 12 years ago.

I’ll have to find a way to get this off the record and onto my computer.
