Kinrara

This is a short little tune I found in the Simon Fraser collection of Scottish Airs and Melodies. I like the way it waffles between F major and D minor.

The only recording I’ve found of this tune is off the album "Castles, Kirks, and Caves" – a very cool project from cellist Abby Newton. http://www.abbynewton.com/castles.html

You can listen to it on YouTube here:

Also, this is my first submission. So if anything’s out of place or done awkwardly, please help me out!

Abby Newton taught this tune as a slow reel at the Boston Harbor Scottish Fiddle School, August 2007.
The chords are hers, note the C naturals in the last measures of each line.
She played it in a set with another D minor(ish) jig from Unst called "Sister Jean"
