Gallus Moll beautiful tunes (35) RE: beautiful tunes 20 Dec 18

Senofou, I have a theory about funerals in particular the 'after' part (purvey and session, particularly in the case of a folkie who has passed): after a certain age / stage in life we should periodically be hosting a pre-death wake - so we can be there to enjoy the session in person!
So -- perhaps annually, perhaps less frequently --but so much better than being dead and missing the party! (well, apart from when the inevitable happens -- ?)

As for lovely tunes - like Tattie Bogle's selection plus a few of the other submissions (scratching my head at some tho!)
Didn't notice any Pipe Major Jock McLellan of Dunoon tunes ? He was a great composer - and as well as pipes he played fiddle, piano; his harmonies really enhance the lovely tunes and he is well worth seeking out.
(not to be confused with the more recent Captain John Maclellan who also composed/es)
