A Irish-Scottish reel.
As most of my tunes I play, I don’t know much about them, and I learned it by Douglas Stuart.

This tune was composed by Addie Harper from Wick who also wrote The Barrowburn Reel.
Just in case anyone thought it was one of Sting’s. 🙂

Only Slightly different. I like the progression from C natural to C sharp

Learned this at the Southern Hemisphere International School of Scottish Fiddle (SHISSF) from Sarah-Jane Summers. Awesome tune!
