Five comments

One of my favourite airs (so, of course, it’s not a strathspey) and perhaps a slow one at that with a tempo of about 82 quarter notes per minute.
From the mighty musical talent that is Phil Cunningham.

Other PC/AB tunes

I really enjoy the playing of Phil Cunningham and Aly Bain. You don’t by any chance have the ABCs for Sarah’s Song or Sophie’s Lullaby from the same CD, do you, DonaldK?

ABC’s not at hand but could be in pipeline.

I’m watching the pipeline, DonaldK!
