Billy Thom’s

Came across this tune as I was hunting for a recording of the Growling Old Man & Woman (https://thesession.org/tunes/1006)

This tune stood out and so I began the hunt for it!

Enjoy

Re: Billy Thom’s

You’re right, Alison: Billy Thom was born in the maternity hospital at Bridge of Allan, but he was actually from Dunblane, 3 miles up the road.
