Composer

Composed by Scots fiddler Gordon Gunn - and that’s all I know about it! Except that I like playing it on whistle with our Ceilidh band.

Montgomery Bell, X:2

Heard this first from Gordon Gunn in 2015 in Wick. He played it again in a Zoom virtual reunion of the Boston Harbor Scottish Fiddle School, August 2020, along with Jig Run Rig and John Keith Laing. All great tunes.
