Munster Lass

This is also in the Goodman collection book 2. Sadly I don’t do ABC so can’t put it up here….

Angus Chisholm

This is the first tune in an F Major medley recorded by Angus Chisholm, the Cape Breton fiddler. He called it "Thompson’s", and followed it with "Light and Airy". I learned the medley from the recording years ago.
