Re: Return To The Stewartry

Great tune.

Catriona and Ian taught us this one at a workshop quite a few years ago.
It wasn’t one of my more succesful classes. Very tricky tune indeed.

Re: Return To The Stewartry

Yeah, it is really hard (on the flue at least! definitely a fiddle tune)

Re: Return To The Stewartry

Afte about 15yrs of Catriona teaching this great tune, I can finally play it 🙂
