Played in D (double C tuning) from Nick Hornbuckle's excellent new book. It's a bit rough but I get stage fright as soon as I press record!

I'm not sure if this is a traditional fiddle tune or whether it was composed by fiddler, Walter McNew. My version is based on Mac Benford's banjo playing. (played on my LeVan banjo)

This is a tune I wanted to learn after hearing it on a Clive Palmer album. It's interesting that it sounds so modern with melodic and single-string elements but was actually composed by Morley in the 1920s. The original score has a tricky third part which I have yet to tackle!
