A 2/4 march - not a strathspey - composed by T. Douglas, and it has 4 parts.

Do you have the other two parts?

There are other parts?? The version I’ve heard from Bonnie Rideout only has two…

I have a wonderful recording of this from a 78rpm record by William Powrie. He follows it with "Willie Cook" and "Speed the Plough".

On TG4 programme "Geantraí," Lara and Barry Kerr of Armagh play 2-part version of this march as a "highland." Lovely fiddle and flute duet nonethelss.

Here’s Lara and Barry Kerry’s version:

Sorry, that should read Kerr.

I think this is a pretty standard piping setting, minus GHB ornamentation for clarity. It has all four parts. This is my first time transcribing a pipe march, so to those pipers on here, if I made any errors, tell me! :)
