Tune of the Day: The Midlothian Pipe Band

Traditional pipe tune

This 6/8-time march was composed by Farquhar Beaton, who was Pipe Major of the 48th Highlanders of Canada from 1900 to 1913. Pipe Major Beaton experimented with part-playing on Highland bagpipes, and is responsible for introducing the playing of parts in pipe bands in Canada.

Thanks to Ronald for suggesting this tune!
