Farewell To Craigie Dhu

I played this tune in a group with a harpist many years ago, I don’t know much about the tune other than it sounds Scottish.

This is a Dougie MacLean composition. Craigie Dhu was a former abode of his, in Butterstone near Dunkeld.

It might help if you were to put some time in to research tunes before you submit them. That way, compositions like this can be properly attributed to their composers.

Nothing I enjoy more than plenty of parallel thirds.

Re: Farewell To Craigie Dhu

You could maybe also move the first start repeat to after the A and B pick up notes and add a start repeat at the very beginning of the third line. That way, at least, the audio would play correctly.

Re: Farewell To Craigie Dhu

I have got to learn this. It’s so unusual. Love it. Is there a way to get access to the recordings mentioned on the session?

Hi Barbara - see the link above this to Dougie’s "Fiddle" recording, still available for download on "iTunes". If you go to Dougie’s website, you may still be able to purchase a copy of the CD, but it does cost about £6 sterling to mail a CD to the USA these days. It’s a great collection of tunes.
Best wishes, Kenny
