Norman Maclean RIP - JAJ - 03-09-2017

Norman Maclean has passed away.

What is the relevance here, you may ask? However, he composed this classic tune

played in many sessions throughout the land.

Condolences to Norman's friends and family.

Incidentally, do we know of any other tunes composed by Norman? 

I recall Jack once saying that Scarce of Tatties and Streets of Laredo were from the same family of tunes...both derivatives of an older tune, apparently.
