You forgot the terrific English one - The Cutty Wren.

Nice to hear "Death of the Wren". Last month I had 100 hundred people all playing that tune through about ten times in a row, going from slow and getting progressively faster. It wis bra.

Interesting medley, Dick. Photos are really great - are they all your own?

Nigel, next Saturday you are leading yet another group, this time at Celtic Connections. We have some of our Lochgoilhead Fiddle Workshop (at Strachur) members attending, including myself, so looking forward to a great afternoon.
