The Shetland Fiddler

Here's the tune I used to hear at sessions all the time played along with Dinky Dorrian's. For some reason it and Mr. Dorrian's reel seem fairly absent from the sessions I hear these days. Sometimes absence makes the heart grow fonder. In my case it just makes my recollections of this, and of "Dinky's", grow vaguer.

In any case, here what remains of my recollections of it. I'm sure www land contains some less time-bevaguened versions.

    I have to admit that this is one of my favorite reels of all time, and it really works well for flute. Good job on your arrangement and variations. I like to play it a tad faster and plainer, but it’s just a great tune anyway.
