The Bright Hollow Fog (strathspey?)

Chicago box and concertina player John Williams recorded this tune as an astonishingly beautiful slow air. Following the duet tracks with Micho Russell, it really sounds like a lament for him. Well, it’s impossible to convert the soulful playing into dots, but it’s something like this:

Sorry, it’s not in Edor. Emin or Gmaj?

John Williams

That album is one of my favourite. I recommend it to all.

This March of a tune is perfect in Em, As it is on an E drone or with "E endings"
It’s reminiscent of a few airs, such as part of The Dawning of the Day, etc
