The Drunken Piper

A great tune from Scotland.

Re: The Drunken Piper

This seems ( to me anyway) to be a version of the march John Doherty (and Vincent Campbell) does which is sometimes called The March Of The Meena Toiten Bull (Bundle & Go) - however that name really goes with the story from the Doherty’s that goes with the tune rather than the tune itself. Vincent Campbell gives the whole story as well as the tune on the 2nd disc of The Purple Heather. I have a transcription of John Doherty’s version which I think I get from here someplace but I can not find it right now.
