about

Glengarrys Foxhunter - A jig from The Airs and Melodies Peculiar to the Highlands of Scotland and the Isles (1816) generally called the Simon Fraser Collection. I became familiar with the old Scottish collections whilst living in Cape Breton, Canada where they remain a source for repertoire among fiddlers.

Wink and She'll Follow - I've encountered this tune under various titles with our choice of name being the most memorable.

Widow Well Married - We got this setting from a 19th century manuscript from the Sliabh Luachra area posted on the Irish Traditional Music Archive website and then transposed it down a tone. Like many slip jigs it has many cousins, one that comes to my mind is ''Port na Deoraí''.
