Da Trowie Spring has been added to 8 tunebooks.
This pentatonic tune (and another called Da Fiddler’s O‘er Fu’) was written Shetland fiddler by Nigel Hallett to accompany a traditional Shetland dance, the Eightpenny Reel. I learned it from the playing of Angelika Nielsen, a fiddler from the Faroe Islands. I really enjoy the charming little extra bar in the B section.
