Written by Dougie McLean. I think this is on his "Craigie Dhu" album, and was a live track recorded at a Folk club in Canada - possibly Calgary - with my brother Martin playing guitar. A pretty good live recording. Works as a strathspey, as well.
This is a great tune. According to the liner notes on Craigie Dhu, it was recorded at the South Side Folk Club in Edmonton in 1983 - My hometown!
Any ideas about why this tune was named after an airplane?
I learnt this tune with a C-natural on the 4th note of measure 1 and measure 3. I kind of like it this way. Thoughts? (I like this tune - it feels like being on an airbus!)
Its got airbus in the name because?.?.?.
If I remember, I’ll ask my brother on Sunday.
