Dovecote Park

I’m posting this in answer to a request for a good 6/8 march. I have played this for years; I think I first became aware of it through the playing of Dave Swarbrick on his "Ceilidh Album". It is sometimes called "MacDonald of Sleat" after a dance of that name which uses the tune, and it was composed by a James Braidwood. I enjoy playing this tune a lot.

It’s a ‘CRACKER’

I’ve just played it through and I think I’m going to enjoy playing this tune a lot too.

boring as a march /fun played at slide speed!
