This is the version Brian Finnegan does and you can hear it on his album "toward the sun" with William Coulter on the guitar.

An arrangement for fiddle ensemble (2 fiddle lines, cello, and chords) is available in Weaver MacFarlane’s Choon Book, a free download from cracklingsmarts.com.

Audio file of this arrangement is available on Soundcloud (just search for Weaver MacFarlane).

Cavers Of Kirkcudbright, X:6

Just transposing the version above submitted by DonaldK, down to D major, which is the key it’s played in around Jedburgh. Also for the B part.

Re: Cavers Of Kirkcudbright

And for those of you who aren’t Scottish, please note that Kirkcudbright is pronounced ‘Kirkoobray’. Oh, and Cavers rhymes with ‘ravers’.
Stay well
