Belgarth Waltz

A nice waltz which I heard at a session recently. I have checked and I don’t think it’s here already but I am sure someone will soon tell me if it is.
I was told the tune was written by Brian Ó Eadhra, of the band Anam. If so, thank you Brien, nice bit of work, well done.
The notation is as given to me by a friend, so I can take no credit for the transcription.
Enjoy.

Re: Belgarth

Setting 2 has a B part which is a variation of Brian Ó Eadhra’s beautiful composition which is easier to play on the D flute and whistle and I think is a bit more interesting. I also plays beautifully on the BC button box.

Re: Belgarth

Just as an aside, Aimee Leonard was the bodhran player with the band Anam: her Dad, Eoin, started making bodhrans when she needed a new one, and went into it professionally in 1996. These were the Belgarth Bodhrans, and Eoin was based a wee bit out of Stromness on the so-called mainland of the Orkney Isles. Spent a whole afternoon there as he showed us his workshop and how he made them: still have and use the one I bought then, which has on its rim images of the Ring of Brodgar standing stones.
