(March) Craigearn is between Castle Fraser and Kemnay. I wrote this tune for Margaret Simpson and her sister Marie who were brought up there when their parents George and Mary Malcolm owned and worked the farm. The family home was sold in 2013.
Composed for the occasion of Neil Snr's 80th birthday on 11th July 2010. Neil is from Blairgowrie and once owned the Moorfield House Hotel where the Blairgowrie Accordion & Fiddle Club was held when I started playing.
(Hornpipe) I worked on the Traditional Music Course at Perth College for 4 years. The Atomic Kelpie was the name of one of the groups that emerged from the course and needed a tune for one of their sets.
