This is a brilliant tune by the great Highland Piper Peter Morrison. I transcribed it to the best of my abilities from the “Mellowosity” album by the Peatbog Faeries. I know little about the tune other than the fact that I have been obsessed with finding the music for it for years now. I have finally completed (what I believe to be) a successful transcription and I wanted to share it with you lot. It was rather difficult due to the fiddle parts moving between melody and harmony, but here it goes.
