Written in memory of Cameron Gaskell – a fiddler who was a well known face in Edinburgh sessions, for many years was a tutor at Scots Music Group and also a member of the band ‘North Sea Gas’
I met Cammy through the sessions at the ‘Tic’ (the Antiquary), he was always enthusiastic to have a few tunes, loved meeting people and encouraging everyone to be involved, no matter how long they had been playing. He passed away far too young and is missed by many people.
I composed this tune the day he passed away, although it’s in 3/4, it’s not a waltz but more like a happy air, as I didn’t think a sad tune suited his character.
