Margaret’s Pint

This tune came about some years after the name. We were sitting around a session having discussions over good possible tune names and this came up, named after one of the regulars who was never seen without a pint unless she was in transit to the bar.

I was putzing around on the fiddle one day and this tune popped out. I’d never written a strathspey before, but the way the tune flowed out really leant itself to the necessary bouce needed for a tune like this. Play with glee, and follow with an Amin or Emin reel for seasoning.

I love this tune!!!!! Thanks for writing it and thanks for posting it🙂
