Scottish Slant 20

This gentle Scottish waltz is called ‘Wee Rab’s Waltz’, composed by William Hannah, a melodian player active in  the 1930s. I believe ‘Wee Rab’ might have been his disabled son. As always his tunes are original, tuneful, disarmingly simple and open to good arrangement.

Interesting, as I was unfamiliar with the name, but liKe many he is someone who did well, l but life passes on including his personal history so typical of a bygone era. Sounds good a good read up needed. I will do further finding out and maybe try some of his tunes. He lived about 30 miles or less from here.

Thanks for info. and best wishes to all on the Forum.
