Da Fiddler's O'er Fu' has been added to 4 tunebooks.
This tune (as well as Da Trowie Spring) was written by Shetland fiddler Nigel Hallett to accompany a traditional Shetland dance, the Eightpenny Reel. It was the winner of the 2006 David Hall Memorial Trophy for the best tune in the Shetland style. I learned it from Angelika Nielsen, a Faroese fiddler.
