  Garster's Dream

Jigs aren't that common in Shetland, but there are a few good ones. This one was named after a Shetland fiddler called Garster who, while on his way home from a wedding, laid down and fell asleep. He dreamt he heard fiddles playing and remembered the tune when he awoke. That is how we have Garster's Dream. I play this in the middle of a set comprising Da Fields o' Foula and Da Brig.
