MacKinnon’s Rant

On a number of recordings, MacKinnon’s Rant links to MacKinnon’s Brook which is a Strathspey. This is a Reel and is the tune played, not MacKinnon’s Brook. My setting is from the Cape Breton Violin album. Traditional.

Thanks for posting this tune. The confusion on this site between the “Brook” and the “Rant” has bothered me for a long time. Compare this from the Irish repertoire: I think they’re pretty similar, no?
