Sent you an email from this site yesterday, but no way of attaching files to pms or emails from here, as far as I could see. Hope the email (with no attachment!) got through.

Hi Trish,

No e-mail got to me.  I have just checked link by sending myself a message and it worked.  Can you send it but not from the site?  I'll try to send a similar one to you.

Well, after a few emails and some very good work by John Kelly, here we have an "over the internet" version, created by John. I initially sent him a recording of myself playing it on button accordion, and John has added piano, guitar and mandolin to the mix. John tells me he has used Reaper software to do this. You will appreciate that as we have never had a chance to play the tune together, it is not like a concert performance: in particular, quite hard to do a slow air in this way, when, by its nature, you will not want to play in strict tempo. And whatever the reservations of some of our posters here, I still like the tune! Thanks again to John.

Trish, it seems that the site does not allow the uploading of mp3 files.  I have uploaded the file to my Soundcloud page, so until we get advice about the failure of mp3 to upload, the tune can be heard at this link.
