The Radical Road

Composed by Jim Sutherland,The time signature should be 5/4.I’ve altered the abc.

The Radical Road

I tried to alter the time signature,but apparently you can’t do that.

Another great Jim Sutherland tune. Sounds good along with Murdo McKenzie of Torridon. If I recall, that was one of the actual Easy Club sets.

I was living in Edinburgh for a few months in the
mid-80’s when the Easy Club was around, and I remember Jim Sutherland introducing this as a pipe-band tune for marching around corners :-).
