Johnstone’s Fancy

This tune is remembered from the playing of Benny Green who used to play the button key accordion around Milngavie and Glasgow. The transcription is based on a version played by Saskeen’s accordion player on one of their many LPs.

Hi Angus, I remember Benny Green. Is he still with us? Great version of this tune, I shall learn forthwith - been looking for it for ages.
