Cheviot Rant

Composed by Mitchell for the Cheviot Ranters. Goes with a composed dance of the same name. I guess this dates from the late fifties or early sixties.

This is N.. hardcore stuff here.

The Cheviot Rant

Composer was Billy Miller, fiddler with the Cheviot Ranters in the nineteen-fifties. He was no longer with the band when they recorded three LPs for Topic in the early seventies. The three Topic albums are all available as digital downloads from Amazon etc.
