New Lang Syne film

New Lang Syne film

teasingly based on the Scottish folk song Auld Lang Syne, New Lang Syne is an original dulcimer instrumental by Dan Evans and the opening track of his Au Vieux Moulin CD (2014)

originally a mountain dulcimer and guitar duet, composed with Danny Holmes (guitarist in Diesel Therapy), this arrangement for mountain dulcimer is performed solo and fingerstyle (fingerpicking) in Ionian EBB tuning (DAA buy in key of E)

Auld Lang Syne is often sung at midnight on New Years Eve, or Scottish Hogmanay, to celebrate the end of a year – the words to the song were written by Robert (Rabbie) Burns and it is speculated that he might also have composed the tune on his violin
