Subject: RE: Origins: The Snows They Melt the Soonest
Hey, Just googled "The Snows" and got this thread. I recorded this with my band, "Way Up North" in the mid-90's. I had heard Dick Gaughan's superb rendition and was inspired to give it a try myself. We did it in c minor with a soaring whistle solo part way on. Just resurrecting the song to play with a young woman who has studied Scottish fiddle with Alasdair Fraser and was looking for more background. Found it here!
