Smith O’ Couster
Tom Anderson composed this Reel,
Nice Harmonic Shifts
I like the way this one doesn’t belabor the tonic.
Nice tune I found in Eliot Grasso & Dave Cory (pipes & banjo) album "North by North West".
If anyone has some informations on the origin/composer ?
Smith o’ Couster
Composed by the late Shetland fiddler Tom Anderson. He recorded on his 1963 LP ‘Scottish Violin Music’ as "Smith of Couster’s Fancy". It was written for his friend Magnie Smith, who also played fiddle.
