Newmarket House

The original tune on the Highland pipes is in B minor, but I feel it works better on Irish pipes, flute, and whistle in A minor, which is the Version 1 posted above.

It was composed by Robert (Bobby) Burns- not the poet, but the former Pipe Major of the Royal Scots, who passed away in 2017.

Newmarket House, X:2

This is the original key on the Highland pipes, more suitable for those playing Scottish Smallpipes.
