Tune of the Day: Birk Hall

Traditional Scottish Strathspey

This pipe tune first appeared in Robert Ross's Choice Selection of Scots, Reels,Country Dances & Strathspeys (1780). The tune is named after Birkhall, a vast estate in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, whose name derives from the Scottish birk haugh, meaning ‛birch river-meadow’.
