MEMORIES OF DICK FLEMING. AKA and see "Cheviot Waltz." English, Waltz. England, Northumberland. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. Composed by Ron Purvis. It was originally entitled "Cheviot Waltz" but was renamed to honor the late Dick Fleming (who died in 1988) at the request of the Border Strathspey and Reel Society, of which he was a prominent member. Purvis lives in the Border country of Northumberland, in the extreme north of England bordering on East Lothian, Scotland. The tunes follow traditional Scottish Border country style. Purvis was a fiddler in the Border Strathspey and Reel Society for many years, and published a collection of tunes in 1995, A Border Fiddler's Tunes.
