Hamefarin’

From the Arthur Scott Robertson album and composed by Arthur Scott Robertson.

Re: Hamefarin’

Again, this tune and The Rover’s Return are tunes that would be played in Ireland as a Barndance and as a reel in Scotland, but at the tempo of a Barndance.

Re: Hamefarin’

The proper title of this tune is "The Hamefarin 85 Polka", written for the Shetland Hamefarin of 1985. One of the people to get the event off the ground was that giant of Shetland fiddling Dr Tom Anderson, who was also involved in the 1960 Hamefarin 25 years previously.
