A tune inspired by a place I've never been to

This is my first attempt at embedding a tune on Wordpress, so here goes!

Anyway, I was lucky enough to get to know Ric Sanders, fiddler extraordinaire with Fairport Convention, when I was a teenager and he taught me this tune he wrote. As tunes go, it's quite a simple ditty, but it's stuck with me ever since. And I've never even been to Portmeirion.

Chris and I recorded it in our flat - that's Chris on guitar. I was playing in the bathroom and I don't think it's too bad a sound, all things considered!
