Link (Midi or Youtube):
Sorry to say, the YouTube I originally found, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UC9zBZxrWFM, played by the composer’s band Fiddler’s Bid, and so presumably pretty close to what he intended, has been taken down.  If you know of any others, please let me know via the Suggestion Form.  Meanwhile, try this MIDI: Michael’s.

Source (if known): Michael Ferrie (of Fiddler’s Bid)

Region: Shetland

Notes: This is a tune from Shetland by Michael Ferrie (of Fiddlers Bid), a great talent who died very young of cancer. According to Tunearch.org, Michael Ferrie wrote this in 1996 in the last week of his life.
