Tune of the Day: The House of Cluny

Traditional Scottish strathspey

This tune was composed by William Marshall, a Scottish fiddler most famous for his many fine strathspeys. Marshall worked for much of his life for the Duke of Gordon as the Steward of his Household, and it is fortunate that the Duke was an enthusiastic supporter and patron of Marshall's music. The title refers to the House of Cluny, where George Gordon of Buckie lived in the 18th century.
