The Barley Skimmers
Scottish Music For the Pipes
An inspiring collection of over forty original pipe tunes. Covering a wide range of rhythms and time signatures, it includes music written in many of the different highland and island landscapes of Scotland, reflecting their seasons, birdsong and the people who live there.The notation is written in Highland style with an assumed key of A with no key signature and has Highland decorations.
The book comes with a study cd, played by Allan MacDonald, to help in learning the music.
‘The tunes definitely have an air of Highland inspiration’
