Jenna Reid of Quarff

A great tune by Shetland fiddler Kevin Henderson for his girlfriend Jenna Reid. Many thanks to Anna Massie for providing me with this transcription.

And Dochas and now Deaf Shepherd - Great new line up

Uncanny!

I’ve just posted the Dochas first album under recordings and suddenly it joins with this tune - nice to find it - many thanks Alistair!

Another

Also played by The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc, on their album of the same name.

The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc includes the composer, Kevin amongst their members.

Jenna Reid Of Quarff, X:2

Not to pick an argument with Anna… but bar 13 of Anna’s transcription (Alastair Cassidy’s setting) doesn’t match what the composer plays… nor what Anna plays either!

I think I’ve fixed it with this setting. I promise I haven’t touched anything else - just bar 13.

What a cracking tune!

Or Bar 12 depending on your point of view.
🙂
I was a little confused there until I realised that you counted the “second time bar” in the repeat.
