Background

Not much, I also know this one from Steampacket’s CD "Homecoming", and the composer is Mickey Dan (as far as I know). Maybe anyone else knows more?

Yeah, so you say… Is that you trying to whistle it alarum? Let’s do it in stereo ~ 😲

Nah! It doesn’t go comfortably there either… Enough flookin’ about, back to the old standards then… πŸ˜‰

Okay, now here’s the real info about it:

The composer is Mick McAuley, accordion player with Solas.
