Calum Breugach

J.P. Cormier does a great guitar rendition of this tune on Howie MacDonalds’s "Y2Keilidh" CD. He follows it with Christy Campbell, Mason’s Apron, Sean MacGuire’s Reel, and Picnic Reel. I love it.

and it is in the key of Am


This is not the tune Lame Malcolm (properly Calum Crubach)

Actually, since every F is sharp, the feeling is more A Dorian to me.
