A very popular tune in Edinburgh sessions about 15 years ago, especially popularised by the great fiddler John Martin;

John Keith Laing

Composed by Addie Harper, leader of the Wick Dance Band.

Good to see you hanging about here, Niall. We’ve never met, as far as I know, but we’ve spoken on the phone (when I was asking permission to publish "Trip to Pakistan" and "The Shore Bar"). I’ve also got some tapes of old Edinburgh sessions on which you’re playing. Don’t worry, I’ll keep them in a locked vault!

Session tapes

I would be interested in hearing these tapes sometime.

In connection with these old sessions, quite a number of the tunes played don’t seem to be on this data base so, with time, I hope to add them.

Niall Kenny

I’ll make a copy for you, if you’d like. Looking forward to the tunes you’re intending posting here!
