Jerry Holland composition

This is a Jerry Holland composition, originally in GMix, appearing in Jerry Holland the 2nd Collection, Cranford Publications and http://www.cranfordpub.com/tunes/abcs/hollandarchive.abc .

The Normaway is an inn in Cape Breton owned by Dave MacDonald, If I recall correctly.

Your memory serves you well! The Normaway is in the Margaree River Valley. It’s absolutely gorgeous there. Dave’s a cousin of mine, incidentally, so it was really great to find out that Jerry Holland wrote a tune for him.
