Very popular pipe jig

This pipe jig is a Donald Macleod composition and very popular in sessions around Scotland. It gets played by Irish musicians too. I don’t always play it exactly the same way each time but this is the usual version.


Rory McLeod

It was Donald McLeod’s first composition, written when he was 14 years old.
