In Memory Of Herbie MacLeod

From Jerry Holland’s "The Second Collection", a lament for Herbie MacLeod of Arlington, Massachusetts who died in May 2000. Herbie’s parents were Gaelic-speaking people from Cape Breton.
As a tribute to Jerry Holland, who died in July 2009, the Strathspey and Reel Society of New Hampshire played this tune along with a selection of his reels in the 2009 Gala Concert.

Thanks for posting this! I’ve known this tune for years, learned it from a (pretty ambiguous) Cape Breton album, but never knew anything else about it. I had no idea it was so recent.

Weird. Beautiful tune, my daughter is learning it. We love it. She was born: May 2000.

Re: In Memory Of Herbie MacLeod

That’s a beautiful tune!
