The Kirrie Kebbuck C: J Scott Skinner

A strathspey by Scott Skinner. The title refers to a kebbuck (full round of cheese) that was cut with a saw by Skinner’s friend Sandy MacPherson of Kirriemuir (or ‘Thrums’ - Sandy was called "The Laird o’ Thrums by Skinner).

You can see the tune in Skinner’s manuscript here, and scroll down to hear him play it:

I’ve added a second setting, being one with slurs, gracing and stops, closer to the printed version.
