Hi - this tune has been driving me nuts - can't get it out of my head. It's *probably* a Scottish tune - and the pacing of it I have in my head, I would describe it as a march. I have recorded a very very rough version of it here: http://lnk.ms/9n8zL

Please can someone tell me : what it's called, who wrote it (if known), and when?

I'd be very grateful.

thanks


Steven

Meant to say... it's just the badly-played mandolin snippet I need a name for - please ignore other tracks that might start afterwards.

Thanks

The tune is called " CALUM"S ROAD ". It was composed by Donald Shaw,
at the time,a member of the group " Capercaillie ".
It was written to commemorate the building of a road in the Isle of
Raasay by a crofter, Calum MacLeod,two miles long and with no
mechanical aids, just a pick, shovel and wheelbarrow.
the tune has become very popular in recent years with S.D.B"s
Joe.

Thank you very much indeed. That's really interesting. I'd have thought it was older than that - but had a feeling it was under fifty years old.


Thanks for taking the time.

Regards


Steven
