Of course, this is a two-step rather than a jig. Great tune
and very popular with north-eastern Dance musicians.
Good to see Robin is still doing sterling work passing it on to others.

Anne Fraser MacKenzie

A very popular tune in Scotland written by the late Bobby Macleod from Tobermory for his Fiddle player’s daughter…the Fiddle player was Pibroch Mackenzie.
Published in Bobby’s book, one or two notes slightly different

Ann Fraser MacKenzie

Pibroch MacKenzie was himself from Tobermory on Mull and in the 1960s recorded two albums of his fiddle music that I’m aware of. It was in 1942 while serving at Edinburgh Castle that Pibroch taught himself to play jazz on the fiddle, and in 1949 he joined Bobby MacLeod’s band. Did you ever meet him, John?

Anne Fraser MacKenzie

Although Pibroch…known on the band scene as …’The Pib’ lived and worked In Tobermory he originally came from Torridon in Wester Ross
He was as you said in the Castle and was a drummer in the Lovat Scouts…one of his ‘claims to fame’ was jazzing up Caddam Woods on a BBC broadcast with the Alasdair Downie Band.
Two of his grandsons are very good drummers…..one plays with Tom Orr the excellent young Accordionist…..

Pibroch Mackenzie

Remember your great grandfather well, often saw him at mull music festival, he sometimes played with the late great box player Jim Johnstone from Tranent, Bobby Colgan of Tranent was on drums and I’m sure pibroch played on Bobby’s "bothy Night" album. Can get Bobbies contact details if you post your email address on site, sure bobby will have some great stories about him, the Mishinish sessions were legendary during the festival which pibroch attended. A small bench is erected in memory of you great gran and grandfather on the steep hill out of Tobermory, sometimes I have to stop for a rest on it, see the wee plaque and it brings back memories of happy days.

Re: Ann Frazier MacKenzie

The correct title is "Anne Fraser MacKenzie" and it was composed by Mull accordionist Bobby MacLeod.
