Additional notes
Source for notated version : - Fisherman, tug deckhand and hammered dulcimer player John Rae [1] (1915-1983, Glenarm, Co. Antrim) [Carlin]. Rae was born into a musical family; his six older brothers and father played the fiddle, and an uncle played the hammered dulcimer and made one in 1924. The older family repertoire was primarily (but not exclusively) traditional tunes with a Scottish provenance.

Recorded sources : - Topic Records ‎12TS373, John Rae - "Traditional Music On The Hammered Dulcimer" (1979). Topic Records, John Rae - "Voice of the People vol. 2: My Ship Shall Sail The Ocean - Tempest & Sea Battles, Sailor Lads & Fisherman" (1997).
