Davy Tulloch – Shetland Fiddler, Violinist and Teacher

For several years in the 1990’s I had the privilege of being taught by Davy at his home in Midton Road, Ayr.  At each lesson Davy would present me with a hand scripted score of the tune along with a recording.

Here is a recording of Davy playing Mrs McLeod made during the first lesson.

Some of the many tunes taught to me by Davy:-
  • McDonald’s Reel
  • The Hill of Finnighert
  • Soldier’s Joy
  • The Merry Boys of Greenland
  • Miss Drummond of Perth
  • The Grocer
  • The Devil in the Kitchen
  • The Smith of Couster’s Fancy
  • David D. McKenzie of Sallachy
  • The Colesseum
  • Kirk’s Hornpipe
  • The Rights of Man Hornpipe
  • Kemp’s Hornpipe
  • Liverpool Hornpipe
  • Manchester Hornpipe
