This reel is one of two on a track following a favorite air of mine “Song for the Smallpipes”. He plays these on the Scottish Smallpipes with a “D” chanter.
Another member told me that the composer on this one is P.M. Robert Mathieson. It was apparently originally composed in Amix on the Great Highland Pipes. But on the recording I have, he plays it on the Smallpipes in D.
Here’s “The Egg And The Fiddle” played by its’ composer Robert Mathieson, who then departs to leave members of the “Shotts & Dykehead Pipe Band” to do their own thing. Be sure to watch it through to the end - it’s pretty amazing !
Amazing indeed! Pity it was cut short, but it was very bold of them even to attempt it.
