James MacLennan’s Favourite

This is a great jig from piper Duncan Johnstone. Pretty popular on Scottish sessions.

James McLellan’s Favourite

It’s in the book Duncan Johnstone "His Complete Compositions" as James McLellan’s Favourite. Good tune.

Or "Mac"Lellan…

which brought up a few recordings.


Yes, sorry, it is MacLellan. It’s all MacLennan’s round here in Skye so I often make that mistake.
