Miss Lyall

Unrelated to other tunes of this name that are already posted to session.org.

My transcription is taken directly from the handwritten tunebook of the late Hugh Blake (box player).

Hugh didn’t cite the source of this tune.

Correct title

The correct title is Miss E Lyall and it was composed by Aberdeenshire accordionist Eddie Edmonds for his future wife.
