The Corner House

Composed by Charlie Sherritt. I used to play this in a set that went Hogmanay/Corner House/Stool Of Repentance. Haven’t played them for years since I started going to Irish sessions, but the tunes are still there in my head.

Andrew Rankine week

Funnily enough Dow, we seem to be having an Andrew Rankine week.
We play Corner House and got it from the Newcastle RSCDS collection where it is attributed to Andrew Rankine (who moved from Alloa to Whitley Bay, so played for them).

I’ll go with that then, Geoff. I just went on dodgy hearsay…
