Tune of the Day: Lady MacKenzie of Coull

Traditional Scottish strathspey

Today's tune is a Scottish strathspey. A strathspey is a type of dance tune in 4/4 time, similar to a hornpipe but slower and more stately, and usually characterized by the presence of many dotted rhythms. These rhythms are usually left out of written notation, but they can be added to give a more authentic feel to the music.

Thanks to Ronald for suggesting this tune!
