This tune is on Alasdair Fraser’s ‘Dawn Dance’ album. This is the first time I’ve tried to use ABC format, so hopefully I’ve got it something like right!
Great tune… looks right to me. It’s probably good to mention that the A part is in F#min and the B part is in Amaj.
Does anybody know who wrote that tune?
Some hints on internet that it might be Alasdair Fraser himself…
Or maybe is this trad scottish tune?
Have a nice day all,
Confirmation, see http://www.culburnie.com/albums/AlasdairFraser/dawndanc.htm, booklet exerpt, track 3:
"Wooden Whale * Leaps and Bounds * Skye Barbeque
The first reel is named for a piece of driftwood found on the Rogue River in Oregon. I wrote the second tune for the late Tasha, a horse owned by my friend Frances Elder in her Inverurie days. Skye Barbeque refers to the difficult but entertaining task of holding a barbeque in the rain at Tarskavaig on the Isle of Skye while dancers attempt an eightsome reel on the grass between cloudbursts. This tune is for Peggy, Flora and Ronnie."
