Salmon Tails Up The Water Duet!

Recently came across a CD "The Northumbrian Small Pipes" on the Topic Label TSCD487 and on track 16, as one tune in a set, Colin Caisley and Forster Charlton play Salmon Tails up the Water as a duet. I know this is a very simple 2/4 tune and must admit I have skipped over it for many years when going through Pipers tune book 1 but hearing it as a duet has re-ignited my interest in returning it to my 'most played' list.

I have scoured my music books and even hunted on t'internet but not been able to find a score for this tune as a duet. Has anybody come across such a piece anywhere? I am happy to stay legal and buy the music if someone can point me to the appropriate publication. I fear however that the dots may no longer (if ever) exist so if anyone has a method or an algorithm for calculating a duet piece from a tune I would be most interested to hear it.

Many thanks
Stephen

Ann Sessoms composed some lovely 'seconds' to Salmon Tails. Probably not the version on the cd, but I'm sure she would let you have a copy if you contacted her.

Sorted!

I contacted Ann Sessoms as suggested and she kindly sent me a copy of her arrangement for duet.

I appreciate the help.
