Canamine Highland

Taken from the Northern Fiddler: Music and Musicians of Donegal and Tyrone, from the repertoire of Donegal fiddler Simon Doherty nephew of the more well known John Doherty. Simon was a tall thin man with a wild head of curly hair. The authors state that he played in a “wild mountainy style” and enjoyed using long notes and “lonesome double stops” in the tunes he played.

Cheers for that Nigel, I grabbed the notes off your website for additional info on the tunes in the N.F. , afraid I just couldn’t be bothered to look for/post the other tunes related to the Canamine, Thanks!
