Absent Friends

Here’s a blast from the past. This was the opening number for Belmonts Coolest Ceilidh Band and then the New Belmont Band. The tune was written in 1994 and was criticised in the tune competition at the Rothbury gathering the next year for being “too Irish”.
The double notes are not intended as harmonies but are written in to accommodate whistle players and flautists who do not have a low C.

Written by whom?
