Winifred's Well


Another composition by Margaret Lawrie, twin sister of Kathleen Lawrie, who plays on several tracks in this collection. The tune somehow reminded her of scenes she encountered in the Welsh Highlands, so Michael Burnham, who plays fiddle on this track with Meg on piano, suggested she name it for Winifred, a Welsh saint. The tune was also recorded by Margaret and Michael for their CD Bygone Days. I am delighted to have the tune included in this collection.
