SHORT APRON [2] (An t-aparan goirid). Scottish, Slow Air (3/4 time). C Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. "Ancient Simple Set" (Fraser). "This air, from having been new modelled by Macgibbon or Oswald, is claimed as a Lowland Scots Melody, whilst the original will be found by far the most simple and beautiful of the two, as sung to Gaelic words by the same gentleman" (Fraser).
