Three doubles. The first and last of these are from Boyd's Cove accordion player Bill Martin (1913-1978). Close-In is the last part of a square set so the Tilting Harbour Close-In would have likely been the final tune of the night at a square dance in Tilting, Fogo Island. The melody itself seems to be a version of the Irish March, Bonaparte Crossing the Rhine, better known as the melody of the song Mick McGuire. The second double came from an old tape of the late Fogo Island accordion player, Harry Eveleigh.
