Andrew Berry asked about this tune in a discussion. It’s from Sealbh by Iain MacInnes (2009). Although it’s in G, I believe Iain is playing the air on an A whistle, using D fingering, so I have rendered it thus. Another example of Iain’s beautiful music.


Oops, I think I meant a G whistle!

Composed by Mairi Campbell

Worth noting that the tune was composed by another notable Edinburgh musician, Mairi Campbell, for an Austrain friend.

It’s definitely in G on the recording, so Low G whistle almost certainly (?)


Thanks for that, Niall. I hope Mairi’s friendship wasn’t too strained.

Aarrgghh - that was of course Austrian, not Australian or any other mangled attempt at a nationality…
