### Another great Phil Cunningham tune.

This is a version of this lovely Phil Cunningham tune which I learned for a Fiddle rally a couple of years ago.

It is, of course, NOT a reel but a slow air and I’d urge you to listen to the recordings by Phil & Aly and/or Duncan Chisholm to get the true feel of things including ornaments, grace notes etc.

### Videos

Here’s how I originally learnt it from Duncan Chisholm’s album Canaich, with a few grace notes. But as John J. says, NOT A REEL and definitely listen to the videos above or get the recordings.
