Rakish Highlander, The

Story

Larry Redican, the great New York fiddle player and composer, once told me he loved going through old books and manuscripts 'looking for strange tunes'. The reel on this track is certainly a version of the tune found in Ryan's Mammoth Collection, known as 'The Rakish Highlander'. Here Larry gives us his interpretation.
