I first heard this tune played by the fine harpist Harriet Earis, I was inspired to post it here!

I thought it sounded very Scottish and checked my sheet music - it’s in Taigh na Teud’s ‘Scottish Fiddlers Session Tune Book’ (Ho-Ro Gheallaidh Vols 1&2), where it’s attributed to James Fraser and referenced to the Lowes Collection.
