Set No.18: Shetland Waltzes
Ronas Voe/Starry Nights o' Shetland

Ronas Voe

This set is part of the following collections:

Ronas Voe was composed by the late Shetland musician Ronnie Cooper. A "voe" is a sort of mini fjord in Shetland. I first heard Starry Nights o' Shetland from the fiddler Finlay Allison. This setting is from the Shetland band The Hamefarers, from a 1966 EP record.

This set and other tunes played at Scottish Sessions can be found in The Scottish Slow Session Volume 1, available from my Online Store.
