The Auld Fiddler

This tune was written by Billy for Aberdeen fiddler Bert Murray,a great composer and fiddler, who asked Billy why he didn’t write a tune for him, so he did, and called it the "Auld Fiddler".

The Auld Fidder…

Started looking for Sean McGuire’s "Mason’s Apron" on YouTube and found this gem. I’ve been playing the tune for weeks now. It’s a classic..!! Thank you Billy McGuire.
