Lament for the Death of the Rev Archie Beaton

While attending the Oban and Lorne Music Festival and helping at the Fiddle Competitions I heard this slow air, written by the late John M Mason, played by some of the competitors and decided to have a go at it on octave mandolin with acoustic guitar backing.
