Scalpay’s a small island in the outer Hebrides. The waltz was written by Scottish singer Archie Grant who died
in 1991. He did not bother to copyright his tunes so they just made their own way once written. He wrote
another tune about Scalpay. So short it could do with a repeat at end.
A lovely A major tune that’s short and very easy to play. Will now go and try it!
Lovely Scottish tune this. I’d forgotten I’d posted it - also simple to play (waltz time).
