Nelson Mandela’s Welcome to Glasgow

Nelson Mandela’s Welcome to Glasgow

On CBC radio yesterday on the Vinyl Cafe was a track called Nelson Mandela’s Welcome to Glasgow. Apparently from a disk called Bravehearts with many contributors. I’m not sure who played this track but it was a combination of african drumming and chanting with a jig played on the bagpipes. I tried hard to remember the tune but non too successfully. I’ve requested the tune, does anyone have this disk? If so what is the rest of it like?

I have the dots and will post it for you, if no one else does first-but not tonight, I’m tired. 🙂

I believe it is from a CD called "Summer in Skye." There is one other similar tune, the rest are completely different but really great in their own way. I recommend it highly! I think you can get it from the Music in Scotland website if nowhere else.
