Rags To Riches

Composed by a mandolin player who played with the Derry band "Quilty". Comes from a recording I have of Gary Hastings & Gerry O’Donnell - don’t know which one of them plays it, but it is followed by "The Houseboat".
"Longnote" may know the composer’sname.

Indeed I do — Ian Stevenson. More than likely it is Gary playing it as very few people know the tune. He is my own source for the tune and it was composed by Ian after his slower, more melancholy "Destitution" (also to be found in the tunes section). And we used to play both tunes as a set. "(The Hoor on) the Houseboat" is also by Ian. Last I heard, Ian was gathering his tunes together with a view to publication. Hope we’re not breaking any copyright, though Ian is hardly the type to mind.
