From the playing of Joe Cormier, off his ‘Informal Sessions’ record. This tune is not listed in the tracklisting on my copy (and this CD is rot with mistakes of that kind). It’s something I have found that plagues the Cape Breton recordings I have come across. Better to use a handy index like this to double check:
Appears in the Athole and Skye Collections. Any info on the person the tune refers to would be great. It caught my eye in the Athole C. mainly because it was one tune character that wasn’t a Lord, Lady, Sir, Miss, Duke, or any other myriad of titles. However great the tunes may be…Americans can get ear fatigue with those. 🙂
