Hut on Staffin Island

Noah taught me this tune (he’d learned it from Jane a while ago) because it’s easier than you first think and it’s often played as a slow reel. We’ve listened mostly to Kathryn Tickell playing it on her album, Debatable Lands, but unfortunately I can’t find her playing it on Youtube. There are lots of other good recordings however, including it’s author, Phil Cunningham playing it on one of the Transatlantic Sessions. I think it is useful to hear a variety of ways of playing it so perhaps try these too:
Solo Fiddle
Fiddle with accompaniment
Bouzouki
Mini banjo? banjuke?

And here’s the pdf.
