Another Shetland ‘trowie tune’ apparently - like "Benort da Dæks o’ Voe", submitted yesterday. There are several versions about. This one is much like the one played here:
Elsewhere on that site you get the story:
"A fiddler returning home from a wedding in the afternoon was carried away by trows [trolls, fairies] behind the dykes of Voe. He was released after what he reckoned was three hours but turned out to be three days. He had learned a fiddle tune, ‘Ahint da Daeks o Voe’."
There are a few versions on that site, including one from Tom Anderson:
"Some say da De’il is dead,
And some say he’s no,
Some say he’s casting peats
Ahint da daeks o Voe."
learned from Catriona MacDonald.
Ahint da daeks o’ Voe
What a great tune - couldn’t be anything else but a Shetland tune by its style. As a Northumbrian piper, I’m definitely going to add it to the tunes I play.
