The Waddling Gander

Lovely tune from the concertina playing of Charlie Coen on “The Branch Line”. He learned it from his father, Mike Coen. It’s interesting how you can hear the waddling gait of the gander in the tune. An apt title.


This seems to be a variant of The Stool of Repentance.
I play it on Scottish smallpipes as a 4 part jig. Henrick Norbeck has it in his collection as a 2 part slide with authorship attributed to Niel Gow.

Thanks for your comment. The Stool of Repentance is posted here, but only has two parts. I would like to see the fourth part to “complete” the jig! 🙂


I’ll put my smallpipes version in the comments section of Stool of Repentance.

Thanks, Bill.
