Garett Allen’s Waltz

Jun 7, 2011 | Tune of the Month

Kathy Fraser Collins, a retired high school music teacher, taught in Toronto and Vankleek Hill. Also a piano accompanist for the Bobby Brown Scottish Band, her enjoyment of the music is contagious; any time she sits down at the keyboard she lifts her audience with her obvious joie de vivre.

Recently, she has also taken up the pipes and plays with the Glengarry Pipe Band. We are so lucky that with a talent such as hers, she elected to return from the big city to her country roots. She wrote this beautiful tune as a tribute to Garett Allen who died in a tragic accident well before his time.
