McLauchlane’s Scots Measure

From the album The Legacy of The Scottish Fiddle, Vol. 2. Who wrote it?
Variation Bar 4 - AFEDd3e, not F4d3e second time through the piece.

Re: McLauchlane’s Scots Measure

Traditional Tune Archive credits the earliest instance of a similar tune to Alexander McGlashan’s Collection of Scots Measures (c. 1781, p. 12). You can find a copy of it at hms.scot.

Cheers.

Re: McLauchlane’s Scots Measure

Just being pedantic, McGlashan spelt it MacLachlane.
