The Radical Road

Composed by Jim Sutherland,The time signature should be 5/4.I’ve altered the abc.

The Radical Road

I tried to alter the time signature,but apparently you can’t do that.

Another great Jim Sutherland tune. Sounds good along with Murdo McKenzie of Torridon. If I recall, that was one of the actual Easy Club sets.

Radical Road

I was living in Edinburgh for a few months in the
mid-80’s when the Easy Club was around, and I remember Jim Sutherland introducing this as a pipe-band tune for marching around corners 🙂.

Re: The Radical Road

Not sure it’s worth submitting another setting for, as most people will play it without thinking, but that last bar should really be 4/4 (or maybe 8/8?) and the last dotted crotchet written as a straight crotchet.
