Da Tushkar

Someone requested this.It was written by Ronnie Cooper,and a tushkar is a tool used to cut peat in the Shetland Islands.

This is a great tune!

I remember dancing to it with Sandy Silva at the VOM camp. I never learned to play it well though, because I dance instead. Thanks, I can’t wait to re-learn to play the tune!

Great tune. I especially like it on the mandolin. Dick Gaughan did a mandolin version on his “No more forever” album preceded by “The teatotaller” on guitar. That was one of my inspirations for learning mandolin, actually. A nice change from listening to the fiddle, though I play that as well now. Probably just as much.
