Barry T Origins: Wild Rose of the Mountain (Si Kahn)^^^ (50) RE: Lyr Req: Wild Rose of the Mountain 21 May 02

Ebbie... is this one of the four versions you recognize? This one's written in 6/8 time.

Wild Rose of the Mountain by John Mason.

I haven't been able to find out much about this tune, though I did discover some info about a John Mason who just might be the composer. This information is from 1981 background notes for a different tune:

"...John Mason, a native of the Orkney Islands now practicing law in Troon. He is conductor of the Kilmarnock and Ayr Strathspey and Reel Society, and a well known conductor at Fiddle Rallies."

Can anyone confirm this individual as the composer of this rendition of the title?
