Re: Donald Ian Rankine

Ian Rankin is a novelist. The composer of this tune is Andrew Rankine (1930-1985).

"Donald Ian Rankine" was indeed recorded by Dundonian fiddler Angus Fitchet (1910-1998).

I can’t hear much difference between mkenneth’s setting (no.3 above) and geoffwright’s setting (no.1).

Re: Donald Ian Rankine

Having listened to the three tunes above several times I would say that version 3 is the original. Version 1 has a few extra notes while version 2 is an interesting variation
