I play for a Scottish Step Dance class and this came up. I haven’t seen it anywhere else and I think it’s quite a nice tune so I thought I would share it with the session users. I do use some double stopping and some grace notes at places appropriate to my style. That’s one of the nice things about this tune: there are opportunities for individual stylings.
Comments are welcome.

The only recorded version of this tune I know is by an American Renaissance group called The Baltimore Consort on their CD “On the Banks of Helicon”, which has a lot of great Scottish music from the 15th - 17th century. It’s all superbly played, and Kathren Oggie was the first tune I learned off that album.

Just recently heard this lovely tuned played by the Baltimore Consort on the above recording, and as mentioned the whole album is excellent early Scottish music.
I’ll be buying this cd to learn the lovely tunes on mandolin and mandola.
