Tune of the Day: The Lovat Scouts

by James Scott Skinner

This lively quickstep by famous Scots fiddler James Scott Skinner was written in the bagpipe idiom, as you can tell from the little grace notes in the main part.

The Lovat Scouts were a British Army unit, formed during the Second Boer War (1900) as a Scottish Highland yeomanry regiment.

Thanks to Ronald for suggesting this tune!
