Tune of the Day: The Black Bear

Traditional Scottish hornpipe

This traditional hornpipe is played widely through the highlands of Scotland. You may have heard it in the famous 1962 film The Longest Day, which recounts the World War II D-Day invasion. The pipers play this tune exclusively throughout the second half of the movie.

Thanks to Ronald for suggesting this tune!
