Craig O’Barns

A powerful strathspey! I learned this from Wendy MacIsaac’s "Off the Floor" album, and love the tune (and Wendy’s playing)! She calls the strathspey "Fair Wedding," which is the title I use, but on cbfiddle.com it looks like more players have recorded it as Craig O’Barns. Hope you enjoy.

And this is the first tune I’ve put on the session, so if there’s any ABC experts checking my work, I’d be glad to get any helpful criticism.
