The Heroes of Longhope - Drifter - 15-06-2020

Found this one on John's youtube page and thought I would try it.

Having trouble with Soundcloud which seems to upload things twice.  Strange.

Never heard it played on harmonica before, Drifter. The Soundcloud file sounds fine, and I enjoyed your version of the tune. Thanks for mention in your posting!

The tune was composed by Ronnie Aim of Orkney to commemorate eight men who died in the Longhope lifeboat disaster in 1969.. Well done, Drifter!
