 Rigadoon: Sae Fresh and Fair (1985)

Rigadoon were the Leitch sisters Shona (accordion), Karin (accordion) and Lorna (fiddle) from Ayr. They recorded at least one other recording, and this one was available on both vinyl and cassette (I only have the cassette at the moment). The album shows off their musical abilities, but for me, the Scottish tunes are the most interesting - I could leave the rest! Being from cassette, the quality isn't perfect, but hopefully it's good enough to be able to sample the music of Rigadoon.
