Jock Wilson’s Ball

Learnt from a fine 1956 home recording of Cape Breton fiddler Bill Lamey put to CD by Rounder. Liner notes say it’s a pipe tune but it is a tasty short reel on the fiddle. Lamey uses double stops liberally throughout on the A and E strings. His version is worlds apart from what I found in Ceol na Fidhle Vol.s 1 &2 and a more driving rocker as well.
