The ‘Plockton session’
Led by Wilfar Matheson of ‘Incredible Fling band’ fame, a mighty singer of eclectic taste, this session has a broad repertoire. From time to time it will have east-coast songs from Christine Kydd, Dougie Pincock on Nigel Richard’s recently developed ‘session’ pipes as well as a line-up including uilleann pipes, button-box and fiddles.
6 years since there’s been a comment on this, although it came up in a recent discussion. Just thought I’d mention that it’s still going strong, and is now my regular session, at least during school term time. Anything goes, really, and the regular bill of fare is a mixture of Scottish and Irish tunes, and a few contemporary "country" songs.
Some of the tunes currently being played - Jan 2011
In no particular order, or category :
Morrison’s jig - Connaughtman’s Rambles - Banks Of The Allan - Rolling Wave - The Snowy Path - Butterfly - O’Farrell’s Welcome To Limerick - Coppers & Brass [ in "A" ] - Paddy’s Trip To Scotland / Dinky’s - Dance Of The Honeybees / Stack of Wheat / Stack of Barley - The Air Tune [ Liz Carroll ] - Cooley’s - Merry Blacksmith - Drowsy Maggie
There’s also quite a few Highland bagpipe tunes played, such as :
The Ass In The Graveyard - Farewell To The Creeks - The McNeils of Ugadale - Mrs McDonald of Dunachd / The Lochaber Gathering - The Blackberry Bush.
I’ll add more as I remember them, but if you know any of the above, that should be enough for you to join in on at least a few of the sets.
Map’s out by over 100 miles.
Had a great night two weeks ago, thanks for the warm welcome, great tunes and amazing food
Re: Plockton Inn
I’m in Plockton for the night - is there a weekend tune here by any chance?
