@BillyG -

Happy Hogmanay, Billy - miss you! 

Maybe you could help me out - What's your favorite tune from Scotland? 

I love this tune, but couldn't find a good fiddler example.  This version of "Lads Among Heather" should at least be easy for anyone to pick up by ear. 


Here's the lyrics for everyone! 


Kick things up a notch with a few Pipe tunes on the Scottish Fiddle from Jamie Laval! 


And, the 1st song I ever heard the term "Hogmanay" - "The Pot and Kettle" by the Rumjacks!  Okay, they're not from Scotland, but Australia - oh well.  Cracks me up (lol) - it's what happens when you get Old & Moldy (little humor between me and my friends)! 


Okay, not fiddle but we can still fiddle along with it! 



Hope your next year is a GREAT one!

- Emily
