Oot An’ In Da Hairbour

As you may have guessed from the tune name, this is a Shetland reel.

I found it in the ‘English Folk Dance and Song Society Vol. 9 December 1960’.

It appeared in a section about a Shetland fiddler called John Stickle (1875-1957) and the author of the section, Patrick Shuldham-Shaw, collected this tune from Stickle on the 3rd July 1946.

Thanks Don! 🙂 I really like Shetland tunes atm.

Are you getting to many York sessions at all? I will try and do a flying visit to the Maltings if I am in York at all, also I may be at York Folk Weekend, would be great to catch up and share tunes again,
