Port Na Fainne

A great reel from Simon Fraser’s 1816 collection ‘The Airs and Melodies peculiar to the Highlands of Scotland and the Isles.’

Fraser writes at the end of the collection that this tune “is framed by the Editor, from a very imperfect melody, and fancied by the lady whose name it bears, to whom he wishes every connubial comfort.”
