Track 16 the tune “Waterside Two-Step”, I wrote this tune in 2009 for own composition night at the Highland Accordion and Fiddle Club

Track 19 this tune has New Zealand roots, a Country that I have fond memories off, having spent three years as a Teacher in Otatahu College. One of the activities during the School year was an inter house competition when the boys had to learn and perform a Haka, and the girls also performed a Maori action song. The School had a large percentage of Maori; Polynesian kids so it was great seeing and hearing them perform songs from their own culture.
