The Lady Of Ardross

A beautiful slow air from the Redpoint solo album by Wolfstone fiddler Duncan Chisholm. Not sure if Duncan himself wrote it or if it should be credited to someone else? If anyone knows then please comment.

Re: The Lady Of Ardross

Duncan says it was written by one his bandmates in Wolfstone, Stuart Eaglesham. Duncan played it as his tune of the day on 7th June: he says that on a website called Furness Tradition.
There are at least 2 Ardrosses in Scotland, one in Fife and the other about 30 miles N of Inverness: I would guess it would be the latter.
(I also found the tune on Folktune Finder where it was listed as English and trad!!)
