This Cape Breton setting of an old Scottish strathspey was popularized by a well circulated home recording of a 1967 concert of Angus Chisholm. Although the title comes from the Elias Howe Collection (mid 19th century) the setting in that book is weak. The notation above comes from The Cape Breton Fiddlers Collection. Ashley MacIsaac recorded it with a variation of added cuts on his CD Fine Thank You Very Much.
