Kevin Broderick’s

I got this tune from Daniel Payne’s terrific album Chain. Kevin Broderick was a Newfoundland fiddler who played, I have been told, mostly Irish tunes, though this little gem definitely sounds like it is of Newfoundland origin. It’s definitely one of those where the notation only approximates what is actually played, if you’re interested in it you would do well to check out Daniel’s album.
