Roll Her On The Mountain

Stemmed from a Scottish reel called “Roll Her On the Hill” performed admirably by, among others, Daniel Wyper. I have long felt that this tune - which can be found in O’Neill’s by the way - was the missing link between “Roll Her On the Hill” and “Roll Her In the Ryegrass”.

This tune is in the Gunn Book (Fermanagh 1865) as Rool her on the Mountain (sic)
