I love the Blazin’ Fiddles version of this one.

Re: Carronside

I wonder what the history behind this tune is, whether it is trad or was composed by a member of the Tannahill Weavers? The link in the first comment doesn’t seem to be working for me.

Re: Carronside

"This lovely slow air comes from The Inverness Collection of Highland Music. John collected it on his travels, and it was one of our first choices for this album."

The Inverness Collection of Highland Music was published in Edinburgh in three parts in 1888 and John is the band fiddler John Martin.
