A great tune, Nigel.

I had been planning to post it myself one of these days.

Mairearad is a lovely player who can make the piano accordion sound like a musical instrument. :-)

Maggie West’s Waltz

I did not submit it, JJ, but in the absence of any comment from the person who did, I thought I’d credit the composer.

Thanks, Nigel. I just realised that (Too late) after I’d submitted my post. :-)

Does any one know the name of this tune??

Learned it off a random Scottish fiddler I happened to be doing a ceilidh with and he unhelpfully has no clue what it’s called or who it’s by, but someone out there must do…!

Beautiful waltz, play it swung.

It’s called Maggie Wests, written by Mairearad Green.

Hurrah! Thank you to whoever merged the two submissions. I did have a good search for it here before I posted it, but with all the different ways one can interpret the rhtyhm, I did not find it…

Great tune. Goes nicely with The Ookpick Waltz.
