Dont´t know anymore, from where i´ve got years ago the abc of this fine reel written by Phil Cunningham. Heard on "so many partings" with Silly wizard…

…and first in concert in 1978 or later ??? in the "downstairs" club in Langenhagen near hannover inclusive a short but nice whistle session with Phil….

Re: Mrs Martha Knowles

I thought it might be of passing interest to know that Mrs Knowles was John and Phil’s granny. She lived on Bingham Road in Edinburgh. I only know this because she was a neighbour of my granny, who lived in the next close.
