Herr Roloff’s Farewell
James Scott Skinner once again, you can find the original manuscript here: http://www.abdn.ac.uk/scottskinner/display.php?ID=JSS0183
I first heard the tune on the Fidil album "Old Wheel of Fortune".
Here’s a video of Aly & Phil http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dPXCug7wotY
Herr Roloff? That’s what happened to me.
I thought the tune referred to a cure for baldness.
Really beautiful tune :) Sounds great played on a low whistle as well.
Herr Roloffs Farewell
A lovely melody which I only came across today.If you like
slow melodies I can recommend this tune to anyone.Listen to
Aly Bain and Phil perform!

Herr Roloff’s Farewell: As the link above to Aly & Phil doesn’t work now, because that video has been withdrawn, I thought I’d post my own humble attempt at this bonny Air, on Fiddle & English Concertina.
