I learned this tune in the key of G a couple of nights ago at a session in Bristol, where it followed Hurlock’s Reel, also played in G . Since Hurlock’s (tune #3414) on this database is in A I’m submitting Robertson’s in A so that it fits well with Hurlock in A.
However, here is the ABC for Robertson’s in G for those who may prefer that key.

I’ll post a G transposition of Hurlock’s in its file in the next few minutes.
This is a great little tune by Tom Anderson. I learned it at a music and dance camp over the summer. Thanks for posting it, it’s a great tune!
Many thanks for identifying the composer.
Thanks , finally identified composer and title.
