Composer info

According to another member, this tune was composed by Hammish Moore (originally in Amix). I heard it on a recording by P.M. Robert Mathieson on the D Smallpipes.

Second thoughts

I don’t have the recordings, but on looking at track listings, I reckon it’s more likely to be another Mathieson composition. He was always very prolific in recording his own compositions, and quite rightly so. Again, would have been better posted in "Amix".

Thanks

I’ll try and transcribe this and "The Egg and the Fiddle" into Amix and post the alternate ABC in the comments when I get the chance.

Great tune!

bogman, thanks for the link to my page ๐Ÿ™‚
I have rearranged a bit the abc to clearify the syncope, IMHO it’s easier to understand the rythm like that (but my talent in this field is limited…)

Yes, this is a Mathieson composition, cheesy beggar that he is.
