Craigie Dhu

Although mainly known as a songwriter ("Caledonia" is his best known song), Dougie MacLean - also a fiddler - has written some very fine tunes. "Mr and Mrs MacLean of Snaigow" is one of my favourites, and "Farewell to Craigie Dhu". This reel is transcribed from ther playing of Deaf Shepherd from their album Synergy, and is named after the Perthshire cottage where Maclean lived.
