The Cross Of Inverness

Great tune from The Athole Collection, 1884/R 1996, p. 126.

re: The Cross of Inverness

I love this tune! I learned it years ago from the Athole Collection, then I heard a recorded version on a Bill Lamey LP years later. It’s one of those tunes which can be played effectively at various tempos.

Second Setting

Version adapted from the playing of Jerry Holland off his "Fiddlesticks Collection" cassette. Great tune, lively and danceable.

Love this tune! Thanks for bringing to my attention.
