Heather Hill

A Dan R MacDonald tune. One of the Dan R books is the Heather Hill Collection, aptly chosen, it’s quite a nice reel.

Re: Heather Hill

In an interview with his nephews, it mentions that this tune came to him when he was working in the woods. He was on a hill covered in heather, hence the name. Not having any paper with him, ho found a pencil and wrote the tine on a stump. He came back later to collect the tune.
