Barbara’s Rant

I absolutely love this tune. Written by Scottish fiddler Alistair McCulloch at the Pinewoods Camp in Massachussetts. In honour of the then musical director, New England fiddler and teacher Barbara McOwen.

Transcribed from the playing of The Alistair McCulloch Trio. Off The Hook, Track #9.3.
