Does anyone know the title of the first tune of this set. I'm assuming it's Canadian. Thanks.

Ottawa Valley Set

It's the The Murray River Jig composed by Graham Townsend

Thanks so much, Stewart.

Here's a version by Shane Cook, meself. Perhaps you can pull it up but it might be restricted in your locale.

The Murray River Jig

No, can't get that one either here in Canada - now, isn't that ironic? Anyway, I know that tune well; play it meself as a matter of fact.

Unavailable from here, either of them. Western Canada. yes, gillymor, odd. Explicable, but odd. So does the title reference a Canadian river ...

I believe it's named for Murray River in PEI. Having said that, I'm not sure where I got that impression - but I'll defend it to the death.

Speaking of which - my fiddling niece and I have had a twenty-year argument about whether the title is Murray River (her) or Murray River Bridge (me). I might have gotten that from the track listing on one of Howie MacDonald's tapes.

It certainly is a happy tune and is fun to play. Thanks, all.
