Gallowglass Rant

As learned from the High Level Ranters on Ranting and Reeling: Dance Music of the North of England. It has been a favorite of mine for awhile, but I haven’t seen it under this name in any collections I have heretofore thumbed through. Any info about it would be much appreciated.


Apparently, the High Level Ranters weren’t who I thought they were. So I learned it from Willy Taylor, Joe Hutton, & Will Atkinson who I thought were the High Level Ranters…but they’re not….I gotta stop sniffing this Ajax.
