Old Toasty

Composed by Pipe Major Angus Lawrie of the City of Glasgow Police Pipe Band (later the Strathclyde Police band). His cousin Ronnie Lawrie was a fellow piper and member of the police band. "Old Toasty" was the nickname of Ronnie’s father, who apparently danced a lovely hornpipe.

Re: Old Toasty

I should have said that I transcribed "Old Toasty" from the playing of Scottish folk group Black Donald, from their 1985 LP ‘Dancing Hazards’.

Old Toasty, X:2

This is a 4 part version based on the pipe setting from the Gordon Highlanders.
