Londonderry Air - Banjeaurine

"Nice schmaltzy waltz too...not difficult but has some odd syncopations that would catch me out (rests on the 2nd beat, sort of like a hiccup). I'll TAB it out later and send it to Ian."

Hi Rob , thank you for the Buckley, the Baur looks good too. But must get some more ink before I start downloading that and your Mel Bay Book.

Here in Minnesota we have four classic ban joists who would like to develop an ensemble similar to yours. We are searching for arrangements that would include a. piccolo part in addition. any information would be greatly appreciated.. a golfing friend of mine whose wife is an Edinburgh native enjoyed hearing your group and was surprised to hear that Scots were into that sort of thing.
