Written by Dr Charles Bannaty. I’ve included four parts, but this is one of these session tunes that could (and frequently seems to) go on forever, with each player adding another variation, key shift etc.
It’s a great reel though, easy to play and fun to dance to.
I usually hear it start off rather slowly and then it picks up up the pace rather quickly.. The final time around it’s played with so much zeal and enthusiasm that you usually get a nice applause.
I agree Air’leth - good session reel. I just meant that the variation possibilities are large - also my stamina probably isn’t what it should be!
Forgot to add ( for like-minded anoraks) - named after Rudha Brolum (Brollum), a point on the SE coast of Lewis, Outer Hebrides
‘The Brolum’, Scottish Bagpipe Reel was composed by Dr Charles Bannatyne M.B., C.M. of Lanarkshire, Scotland, who composed a number of Marches, Strathspeys and Reels. He died in 1924.
