A great tune written by the late, great, Shetland fiddler and music collector Tom Anderson MBE from Eshaness in Shetland. The tune is named after another late Shetland musician Willie Pottinger. A tune much beloved by Scottish and Cape Breton fiddlers
This is one of my favourite tunes and I regard it as practically perfect in every way. For some reason I hear it without repeats, but now I can’t remember where I first learned it. I’ll need to go back and listen to my Shetland fiddle records and find out!
Also, in the 3rd bar in the B part, I play an F sharp. Mmm.

Great tune. I think I play a G# instead in the 2nd bar of the B part though.
