Turf Lodge

This is a popular jig originally written by P/M Angus MacDonald for the Highland pipes. Recorded by the Tannahill Weavers and many others.

Tannahill Weavers setting

This is one of my favorite tunes, and it only uses six notes!

I’ve posted my transcription of the Tannahill Weavers setting, chords and all.

Well done

I’ve just gotten around to learning this tune (based on hearing the TW’s) and found your setting. Very nicely done - thanks much
