Elsey’s Waltz

A Northumbrian waltz composed by Archie Dagg (1899 -1991), a shepherd and fiddler who took to making smallpipes and reeds late in life; he composed a number of tunes, which have been collected ("A Coquetdale Garland").

Re: Elsey’s

This tune was one of the "hits" at a North Eastern fishing/seaside town festival which I visited last week.
🙂

It seemed to get played in every session.
Although I was quite familiar with the tune, I only realised that it was this one after visiting the festival. I’ve obviously played it at Newcastleton and the like over the years too.
