A lovely tune on John Williams’ Steam album.
More usual to find this in A. Probably made famous by the early recordings of Alistair Fraser. A good version on his"Skyedance - Live In Spain" CD, featuring the piper from "Tejedor".
Lovely tune. I need to learn it. It seems this tune is different from another one known simply as "Harris Dance," which was recorded by Ossian.
“An Old Woman Would” ~ rescued duplication (?) in A

Good Tune ~ This is a very old port-a-beul (mouth music) tune from the Isle of Barra.
This is in a great set on the Album Skyedance by Alasdair Fraser and Paul Machlis. The other tunes in the set are The Bird’s Nest/Harris Dance.
