It’s actually a march but since these don’t exist here…
I think it was written by Aiden O’Rourke for his teacher but do correct me if I’m wrong on that

Excellent tune, you beat me to posting it!

It was written by a piper named Angus Lawrie. George McHardy was Aidan O’Rourke’s teacher though.

George McHardy

Geordie McHardy was a fiddle teacher and butcher in Oban, I remember him well.
