The Camel's Hump

Today I was looking through all of the photos Sam (my spouse) and I took during a very long backpacking trip we did a couple years ago so I could assemble them into a book using blurb.  It made me very nostalgic for tromping around the globe with a backpack and a cheap fiddle.  It was a life altering, mind expanding experience.
 So, today I learned a tune called, "The Camel's Hump," written by the Scottish fiddler John McCusker, who wrote it while on tour with the Battlefield Band in Egypt.  I love his tunes and his tune names.  I had some close encounters with camels during our trip as well.
