The Breakish Storm Sheep

This is a tune in the rare true A minor that we’ve been playing at our session lately. It’s written by one of our regulars Farquhar MacDonald. He’s best known for the tune Tongadale Reel https://thesession.org/tunes/5473 .

There is a story to the tune but I can’t remember off the top of my head, I’ll ask him at the next session.

The Freakish Shorn Sheep

I take responsibility for this one! (very same tune, A Major!)
