A mysterious song
Hello...your web site came up in a search I'm doing for a melody called Jamieson's Farewell. I can find not one shred of info about the tune except for one recording it is on. I don't know if it's traditional or not, or even if it is Scottish. Is it in one of your collections, or do you know anything about this beautiful waltz? Many thanks, Jennifer

I guess, like me, you heard this on YouTube by Ensemble Galilei. Nice tune. I've not come across it before. There's a mention on the net of a tune by that name composed by John Kilpatrick of Steeleye Span, and it does seem to me to have a Folk Revival sound. Regards, Eric

Eric My trio, two violins and a cello, are really enjoying playing some of your lovely arrangements. I've transposed the third part to bass clef for the cello and it works really well. Thank you for the pleasure you've given us. Antoinette

Thanks Eric for your for making your wonderful music so freely available. I have just started playing for a Scottish country dancing group, and
find your melodies both lovely and very playable.
I will also be introducing your harmonies to a music camp this weekend.
Thanks again
Gemma

Just letting you know our dance group is in Coffs Harbour, Australia.
Our group has been dancing for 10 years now. Our teacher is very keen and has 3 classes week. I dance at two and play accordion for her beginners group. Our camp this weekend is both music and dance.
A group of us mainly from Brisbane and Northern NSW, get together 4 times a year at a national park to play music and do different types of folk
dancing. I have given them some
of your harmonies an am looking forward to playing them, and also to your new arrangements.

Dear Eric, so lovely to read about all the good things you and Helen are still doing in support of traditional music. Only wish that Balnain House was as it was. Such special times. Kindest wishes, Jenny

Good to hear from you, Jenny. Yes, Balnain House played a big part in many people’s lives. Having got so much from the music, it’s good to be able to contribute a little
