January 2012: Hugh Finlay’s Legacy

Hugh Finlay’s Legacy is the final tune in a suite commissioned by the Celts in the Cotswolds Festival. The tune was deliberately left unnamed, and the right to name it was auctioned at the festival. The festival was run by the irrepressible Keith & Sue Finlay, and the tune was named by Keith’s brother Ian in honour of their father, who had first encouraged Keith to learn the fiddle. I play it as a reel for dancing.

  1. A very catchy wee reel, Sarah. I have been enjoying playing it on tenor guitar and octave mandolin since finding it via Nigel’s site at The Gathering>

  2. This was played last evening at the Canon’s Gait virtual session. I hadn’t heard it before. Great to discover it’s one of your Sarah. Looking forward to learning it, and playing it at next week’s Canon’s Gait session.
