Re: Legend of the Scots Fiddle

Wonderful old recording by Scots fiddle master Hector MacAndrew. He played in the Northeast style, as did James Scott Skinner, but although there are echoes of Skinner’s playing here, MacAndrew was by no means a Skinner clone. I love a lot of the tunes here; his version of “Lament for James Moray of Abercairney” is quite moving, and it’s always nice to hear a rocker like the “Reel o’ Tulloch” thrown in.
