Composed by Charlie McKerron.
It’s been recorded by Capercaillie on their Live in Concert album as part of the Rob Roy Reels set:
a. The Road to Rio b. Bulgarian Red c. Shetland Reel d. The Gesto Reel e. Kiss The Maid Behind the Barrel f. The Rob Roy Reel
It’s in Ddor, but that doesn’t matter…
cheers for posting this drizzt, I’ve been meaning to learn it to practice all the akward notes it presents to pipers :-s but haven’t had a recording or dots.
After the Irish Spring Tour in Germany with Méabh O’ Hare and Conor Byrne I bought their Cd BAVAN, where you can listen to an excellent playing of this tune. I did it a million (?) times. Great stuff!
I play the fourth bar (and all identical bars) as |f2fe geec|.
The tune is popular in the Borders at the moment.
“Bulgarian Red” ~ oaked! ~ having a bit of fun… ;-)

Though my tendency here was to play it as a single reel without the repeats…
First heard on Zama zama and now I’m addicted to it!
