Showacho

Actually a march by Roddy McDonald, a scottish piper. Tune is named after a place in Japan.

昭和町

There are several places called Showacho in Japan.

Michael never said that there wasn’t. That’s the difference between "the" and "a" 😉

Nice tune. I think I’ll learn it.

Re: Showacho

I play this piece with the rose in the gap and MacLeod’s Farewell.

Re: The Showacho

I don’t want to edit this straight after someone has changed the designation, but I’d call this a hornpipe, not a march - it has an underlying triplet swing.
