Togail Curs Ar Leodhas

From the Battlefield Band album, Celtic Hotel. I’m not sure how to change the tune type away from jig to get a 6/8 time signature, but this is a lovely Scottish air I enjoy playing on small pipes. It’s been many years since I had this album and seem to remember the notes saying something about the first part being traditional and the piper, Dougie Pincock, writing the second part. I think the Gaelic translates to something like, Setting A Course For Lewis.

Re: Togail Curs Ar Leodhas

It is ‘air’ not ‘ar’ in the title. “Togail Curs Air Leòdhas” - Building a course in Lewis. I’m not how that name came about. it seem to be just a second part added to the well known (here anyway) traditional Gaelic song “Tuigann Leum Dean Cabhag.

Re: Togail Curs Air Leodhas

Great, thanks bogman, appreciate your comments. I’ve edited the title and updated the listing on the album link to correct the Gaelic.

Sorry, that should read “Tuigainn Leum ’s Dean Cabhag”.
