What’s this?

From an unlabelled live demo recording of Fred Morrison & band. Are these two tunes after all? He repeats the first before going on to the second, but they sound so alike.

Re: What’s this?

The first tune is John McColl’s March to Kilbowie Castle and the second is Donald MacLean’s Farewell to Oban. They are on Fred’s recording The Sound of the Sun.

Thanks all! Great tunes, now it’s on to transferring them to the fiddle…

Re: What’s this?

I’ve saved your transcriptions to the notes for these tunes…
