Angus MacKinnon

An old pipe band march I used to play.

Re: Angus MacKinnon

This 6/8 march was composed by Pipe Major Donald Shaw Ramsay and it was the first tune in his Edcath Collection, Vol.1, of 1953. Angus MacKinnon was a fellow piper from Lochboisdale.

Re: Angus MacKinnon

I’ve heard this tune before, maybe adapted for dancing, & it’s lovely. On the fiddle, the first setting seems to want a G# on the E string - I presume it’s a ‘flattened seventh’ on the pipes? Please help me, Nigel & Jacke. :)
