A note from Doug:
This is a dance tune we played for many years, along with The Dominion Reel. It works great and is an intermediate level classic. This tune was first collected by Smokey Mckeen, Greg Boardman, John Gawler, and Bob Childs around 1976 when visiting maritime folklorist -tune collector Gale Huntington in Cape Cod. He played it for them on a button accordion.
I think it is on the OGG Folkways recording from 1978. — Douglas Protsik

“Hetty and Farquhar’s Waltz (by Farquhar MacRae) is from the western Highlands of Scotland and is a very nice, swingy waltz for beginner/intermediates.”
