An arrangement for fiddle ensemble (2 fiddle lines, cello, and chords) is available in Weaver MacFarlane’s Choon Book, a free download from cracklingsmarts.com.
(Actually, it isn’t yet. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to receive a pdf of the arrangement. It is available to listen to in Soundcloud, though, and will be included in the next release of the Choon Book, probably by early October 2017.)
Audio file of this arrangement is available on Soundcloud (just search for Weaver MacFarlane).
