This one’s for the most incredibly amazing fiddle player, Archie McAllister from Campbeltown. As we were setting up and sound checking at a gig I played this tune which I had just written and Archie asked what it was called. I told him that I hadn’t yet named it and asked if he liked it. He said he loved it so I said I would call it “Archie McAllister’s Jig”. However, I decided to rename it Archie McAllister’s Five-Stringed Fiddle because a fiddle player would need a five-stringed fiddle to play it because of the low “F” in the second part. I don’t know if Archie actually has a five-stringed fiddle but I doubt it!! He does wonders with just four! Regardless, the tune can be played just as well by using the “F” an octave up!
