Tune of the Day: Perthshire Volunteers

Traditional Scottish strathspey

The Perthshire Volunteers were the 90th Light Infantry Regiment, a Scottish regiment of the British Army active from 1794 to 1881. It was originally raised for service in the French Revolutionary Wars, and served throughout the 19th century before being amalgamated into the Cameronians (Scottish Rifles).

According to Keith MacDonald's The Skye collection of the best reels & strathspeys extant, this melody was composed by one “Miss Sterling”.

Thanks to Ronald for suggesting this tune!
