First played this tune with my fiddle group about five years ago! It’s a pretty common in the repertoire these days.

Re: Flying Home To Shelley

This is one of those gorgeous tunes that sounds nice at dance speed but it absolutely HAUNTING played at a slow pace. I like to play lots of double stops and ornaments. If I ever figure out ABC notation I’ll write out my slow version.
