Origins

Collected from playing of fiddler Charlie Montgomery in Auckland, NZ 2009.

Whose composition is it?

Composed by Charlie Montgomery

By way of background, Charlie emigrated from Fermanagh to New Zealand about 1960, and has been an inspirational fiddler - many the great night in his back room. He’s starting composing tunes a couple of years ago, and I’ve picked a few of them to write out in abc, and post up here for posterity.
