Re: The Old Woman’s Dance does it again. This tune has been haunting me ever since I heard Brighde Chaimbeul play this on her unbelievable “ Reeling “ release. I’ve got the memory of a gold fish at times and tunes surface and go and float around and every now and then I do something positive like sit down and try and learn them. This has been in that camp for far too long. I have just had a major lovein with Brigdhe’s piping on youtube and was suddenly struck with the notion to try finding this here. Why hadn’t I done it before?! Memory of a goldfish, so it goes. Thanks Borderpiper for posting this.
