Three comments

One of mine. I spent a year living in a small cabin on the shores of Discovery Bay in Washington State.

Another Discovery

An unfortunate choice of name, Mary Ann Kennedy wrote a quite well known jig by this name in the early nineties. It’s in Ian Hardie’s ‘Nineties Collection’ and was a short listed entry in the Traditional Music & Song Association of Scotland’s Competition in ‘91 or 92

Tune names and coincidence

sorry, but is it really "unfortunate" that i’m not completely current on the titles of all recently composed scottish jigs.
