Boy, this is new to me on all sorts of levels. I recorded this three days after I started working on it. It took a few trys before I could make it through 3 times with just some cosmetic problems. Here is some info from the Fiddlers Companion: “Willafjord,” or “Wullafjord,” is known by fiddlers throughout the Shetland Islands. The tune originally came from Greenland, imported to Shetland at the end of the 19th century and disseminated in the age of arctic whaling expeditions. It is sometimes described as having originated as a ‘whaling reel’. It's alot of fun to play.

Banjo Style:
