TUNE OF THE MONTH

Here's a little known but beautiful air by Nathaniel Gow.  The name is given as "Macdouall" in the collection "Beauties of Niel Gow Volume 1", but I think it's a typo!

The Dunkeld Bridge Collection, Vol. 1

Fiddle music from highland Perthshire

by Pete Clark, Edited by Jane Marx

[Inver Music; available from musicinscotland.com]

Extract from review in "Fiddler" magazine:

 

This is so much more than a music book – it’s a great read on many levels.  It’s an entertaining history of the people and the area via music, text, paintings, and photographs.  After reading it, you’ll feel as if you were treated to a whirlwind trip to highland Perthshire!
