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!
