A Small Fee

Essentially, I’m just filling another one of the gaps in the recording listing recently submitted by member "ceolachan".

This somewhat quirky tune is occasionally played at one of my local sessions, but I’ve no idea of its origin.

Thanks, David - that’s the one! 🙂

for those who didn’t pick up the comment, the tune was written by melodeon player Martin Ellison and is the first tune he ever wrote.
