The Boreland Bus

Composed byRenwick MacArthur.

Can be found in "The Dryfesdale Collection Of Original Compositions For Fiddle & Accordion by Renwick MacArthur.

Note on the name by R.Mac Arthur - "Tom Rae’s Bus took me safely to the Cocklets from Lockerbie when I was a wee lad"

I have no recordings of his tunes. Only his two tunes books of his own material he gave shortly before he died. I’ve done my best to put translate the tune from staff to thesession.org stlye ABC format.

Hopefully more tunes to follow this one.
