Lord Macpherson Of Drumochter

6/8 march written by P/M Angus Graham. Transcribed from Duncan Chisholm’s "Redpoint" album.

The title relates to the relatively recent peerage of Macpherson of Drumochter, created 1951, so it was probably either written for the late 1st baron, Thomas Macpherson, or his son, Gordon. I’ll be honest, I was hoping for a roguish historical figure. Angus Graham passed away in 2010.
(I found a wee related anecdote, though - http://forums.bobdunsire.com/forums/archive/index.php/t-135078.html)
