Gan Ainm Strathspey

Got this simple but very addictive tune from this clip by Allan and Iain MacDonald
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AyC8DkEM66I

Allan is playing it in Dm on a set of C pipes but they are quite rare and it would normally be played in Bm on A pipes so I’ve submitted it in that key. I don’t have a name for it yet but will endeavor to find it.

This is " Cutty’s Wedding" isn’t it ?

Cuttie’s Wedding

Yes, thanks crunluath, it is a version of Cuttie’s Wedding. Quite different from the version in the Atholl Collection, here’s how it appears there……

Useful dance tune

This tune is used as one of the set of The Robertson Rant, a strathspey of which the main tune is Struan Robertson’s Rant. Delighted to find it! :)
