The same transcription in D…

X: 3 "Kenmay House"

Going a little nuts with triplets, though I’m only offering a notation with just a sampling of that trebbling… 😉

Re: Kenmay House

Ken may, or may not, but Adam Rennie was born in “Kemnay” in Aberdeenshire. Please check out the first track of Julie Dignan’s great album of last year, “The Tea Wifie”, for a spirited performance of another tune mentioned here, “The Remmerts of Herford”, or “Hamish’s Tune” in its common misspelling as a mythical wee furry creature reputed to live on the Welsh border.
