    I have a very old Manuscript book and all the music is handwritten in

    There is a 2/4 March named "Sydney Harbour" and was composed by a
    Farquar E Finlayson. He also composed another 2/4 March named "Leaving Lochalsh".

    Would anyone out there be able to assist me in finding out who this
    Farquar E Finlayson was and where he was from. I have an idea he had something to do with Cape Breton, but don't quote me on this.

    I would appreciate any information regarding him and also the tunes he composed as well.


    Hello Cameron - your post was a long tome ago but maybe you're still there. Farquhar Finlayson was my great uncle who left Lochalsh in Scotland late in the 1800s with his brother (my grandfather), Roderick. I can tell you quite a lot about them if you
    are still around and still interested.

    All the best,
    Ian Jost
