The Gale Warning

A Scottish pipe reel,transcribed from a Battlefield Band album.


A hornpipe, in fact, composed by Drum Major Robert Bruce of the Gordon Highlanders.It depicts a gale building up. "Battlefield Band" got it from the band "Ceolbeg", who recorded it in Robin Morton’s studio. One of the best pipe tunes to play on the whistle I’ve ever come across.
