I learnt this tune from the playing of Natalie MacMaster, on disk 1 of her ‘Live’ Cd. Please Post the composer’s name if you know it!
Typical Scott Skinner tune?
Yes, it’s a Skinner tune.
One of MG’s favourites. 🙂
Thankyou, I didn’t know who it was composed by
This is a great Skinner tune….check out this link!
For the original manuscript
This always goes down a storm!
I’ve heard/used slightly different notes in the C/D section many times.

I’m far too lazy to ABCiate the D section, see http://www.abdn.ac.uk/scottskinner/display.php?ID=JSS0087

Colyn Fischer recorded it on his first album. It’s on track 2.
Play in G on Flute
Anyone tried playing this in G on the flute? A is Ok, but in G it fits the scale of the (keyless) flute a bit better. No one around here plays it anyway, so the problem of playing it with others probably won’t arise. Although I suppose I should learn it in both keys - it’s not the sort of tune I can transpose on the fly.
In G, I get to use my nice low D a bit more, and don’t have to go over the high D - which is already one tone more than most of my session companions like to play up to.
The Hurricane, X:3
This is a mix between the Beaton and MacMaster version. Learned from Andrea Beaton.
Re: The Hurricane
I’m having a go at this one just now.
It’s actually a lot easier than I thought it might be, althugh not "at speed" obviously.
