Christmas Day Ida Moarning on Electronic Melodeon

Here’s my contribution to’s Christmas Tunes theme of the month; this gorgeous ‘listening tune’ from Shetland, written by Shetland fiddler Fredamann Stickle who used to play this tune to the laird every Christmas apparently.

Played in D on a Streb electronic melodeon using a sample set taken from a dry tuned Castagnari melodeon, although with these settings it sounds rather more expressive and almost like a harmonica I would say.
