Cach Mhor Fiddler’s twenty comments

  • The Lady Of Ardross

    A beautiful slow air from the Redpoint solo album by Wolfstone fiddler Duncan Chisholm. Not sure if Duncan himself wrote it or if it should be credited to someone else? If anyone knows then please comment. more…

  • Lily The Pict, X:2

    Here’s a setting in D which is a little easier for fiddlers - thus avoiding the awkward D# - E at the end of each section. more…

  • Angst Agus Angus

    Written by Alan Reid of Battlefield Band, this is a lively jig which I transcribed from their New Spring album. I dare you to only ever play it once! more…

  • Captain Lachlan MacPhail of Tiree

    In response to a recent request. A pipe reel very popular in the Highlands of Scotland. Composed, I believe, by Peter Farquhar. If anyone has more to add on either the composer or the origin of the tune title, then please add some comments. more…

  • Tune Title

    Can anyone shed any light on the rather bizaar tune title too? more…

  • Dinner’s Dangerous River Jacket

    In response to a recent tune request, and from Wolfstone’s Year of the Dog album (1994). A very catchy tune and ideal before Richard Dwyer’s Reel as it is on the album. I’ve tried to find out who wrote it, but because I don’t have the CD anymore I… more…
