Charles Sutherland

Composed by J Murdoch Henderson in 1933 and named after a "prominent violinist" from Fraserburgh, Scotland, who was a friend of James Scott Skinner. His reel playing was particularly admired. This version is from the playing of Jonny Hardie and Gavin Marwick. This tune was in the requests list.

Not able to hear the tunes

Hi all

When I open a particular tune I can see the notes in abc form which is grand however I’m not able to play the tune and when I attempt it the message comes up unable to download. This is a relatively new iPad any suggestions as to how I can hear the tunes. Tnks. Robert G

Here is the version I learnt from a flutist in the seventies. Great tune.
