Thread Name: DTStudy: The Dark Island
Subject: RE: DTStudy: The Dark Island
Very pleased to come across this thread. I'd heard Dark Island a number of times as a melody (probably fiddle) so was a bit irritated when I heard Alan Bell's song changing the tune to fit his words. One of the versions above must be as I heard in the Southfield at Girvan a few years back, fitting the melody.
