Auld Garden Kirn, The
AULD GRADEN KIRN. Scottish, Waltz. D Major. Standard tuning. AABB. The tune was in the repertoire of Borders fiddler Tom Hughes. A 'kirn' is an end-of-harvest celebration. Liner notes to Hughes 1981 recording give: "When Tom and his father played for dances this was the common tune for the St Bernard's Waltz. Tom had no title to the tune but the kirn at Old Graden near Yetholm was always a great gathering."
