Merry Boys of Greenland

Got this off Swarb’s ‘Ceilidh Album’ - it’s great to play at a fair lick with other Shetland reels like Spoot o Skerry and Willafjord

Nice

I like this tune… reminds me of an old USA tune…

Flut in Dmix works well too

Works well on the flute in DMix too - Don’t know if youll get anyone to play along in that key though…

Mind you that is with a nice thumbhole for the C naturals in the second half, so I don’t know how that would sit ona conventional siomple system flute.
