Simon Bradley’s (strathspey)

Learned from Simon Thoumire and Eilidh Shaw’s concertina and fiddle duet playing on their band’s first recording "Keep It Up." It’s simply named after the source of the tune.

I’ve added the correct name of the tune for those who care about such things

The second setting is from "Twelve Modern Scottish Country Dances in Traditional Form" (RSCDS Book 22, 1963).
