    This week's winner is Kenmure's Up and Away. I actually suggested that tune! I learned it from one of my favorite tune books, New England Fiddler's Repertoire.

    What I've found online says it's traditional Scottish tune. Here is a link to standard notation One site says it's called, Kenmure's On and Awa'
    Alternate titles being:
    Kenmuir's Up and Away, Willie
    Hexham Races
    I Will If I Can
    Kenmore Lads
    The Kinnegad Slashers
    The Boys from the West
    Clogher Cross
    Graham's Brook Jig
    Jude's Farewell







    I like this session medley, it's the middle one, going by Jude's Farewell

    Here's one I made earlier - a few years earlier. It is a combination of The Atholl Highlanders and Kenmure's Up And Awa', played as rather fast 6/8 pipe marches on mandolin, octave and guitar. Kenmure goes so well with so many other tunes.

    Great stuff John. Here is my version on my new Irin mandolin. I've always wanted a two-pointer so now I've got one I can pretend to be Jethro Burns

    Fine version, MM, and your mandolin sounds really good too.
