Floating from Skerry

This tune was written by Lynn Tocker, a fine piano accordion player from Northumberland. A search of youtube should find her version… which is better than this one 🙂 Played as part of melodeon.net’s theme of the month for January 2017. “Nautical tunes” on a A/D Castagnari Lilly
