Also, composed by Peter Hardy.

Re: Sir Harry’s Welcome Home

This setting is very different from the one that was published in ‘The Caledonian Companion’ (1981). That collection was compiled by Alastair J Hardie, Peter Hardie’s great-great-great-great-grandson and a fiddler himself. Peter Hardie (c1775-1863) of Dunkeld, Perthshire, was taught by Niel Gow himself, and was a respected fiddle maker. The subject of the tune above is Sir Harry Niven-Lumsden, who also had a tune written for him by Peter Hardie’s contemporary William Marshall.
