A new tune each Wednesday (more or less) chosen arbitrarily by your Webmaster. Most will be traditional tunes but sometimes a new composition will strike his fancy and appear here. Site visitors are encouraged to nominate tunes for this page via the Suggestion Form.
This week’s tune:
Nelson Mandela’s Welcome To Glasgow. A great six-part march. View the YouTube. It’s rather wonderful.
Last week’s tune:
Jer the Rigger, a pretty Irish(?) polka. Jer is pronounced as in Jerry.

- The Hut on Staffin Island, a wonderful hornpipe by Scotland’s Phil Cunningham.
- Frank’s Reel by John McCusker. Fun to play.
