MANGISTER VOE. AKA - "Mangaster Voe." Shetland, March (2/4 time). A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB'. Composed by the late Shetland fiddler, composer, collector and teacher Tom Anderson  (1910-1991). A voe in Shetland is the derived from the Norse name for a sea inlet, and Mangister Voe is located on the west side of the north Shetland Mainland, not far from where Anderson was born. As a march it is sometimes used as a vehicle for the ceilidh dance called Gay Gordons.
