Absolute Crap

A lovely tune with a poor title selection.
Jock Thomson was (he died a few years ago)a superb and versatile musician. He played the Highland Pipes from an early age and won many competitions. He also was a fine piano accordion player, Irish piper and an excellent Northumbrian piper. Jock unveiled this tune at a piping course in Rothbury and when asked the title said “ oh it’s just an Absolute Crap Waltz”. The title stuck and it is too late to rename it<G> but it is a lovely tune.
Jock also had the rare distinction of being the first and only piper to the mayor of Cambridge.

Love it, and shall always tell how it was named when I play it!
