  Haughton House

This tune was the subject of considerable discussion on the internet a couple of years ago. For some reason it was being played in various locations around Ireland and Cape Breton as Auchadon House, but nobody could trace the tune other than from a recording by Joe Ryan. Then someone found it on an LP of Shetland fiddling and surmised it was of Shetland origin. I finally found an old single printed sheet in Perth of a tune called Haughton House by a James Mitchell, arranged and variations added by James Scott Skinner. The tune was recorded by The Boys of the Lough, and this version is based upon that.
