Harris Dance (2)/Harris Dance (1)

Harris Dance

This set is part of the following collections:

Both of these tunes come from the Patrick McDonald Collection of 1884, wherein there are many tunes without names, some of which are described as "a Skye dance" or in this case, "a Harris dance".

The first is transcribed from the playing of Scots fiddler Alasdair Fraser from a 1986 recording, while the second has been recorded many times by different musicians and groups. This setting is the one played by Blazin' Fiddles on their album The Key (2017).
