Tune of the Day: The Hills of Alva
Scottish pipe band march
This popular pipe band march is named after the Hills of Alva in Clackmannanshire, Scotland. The tune was composed by Tom “Tam” Muirhead, a dance-band accordion player from Lanarkshire who happened to live nearby to pipe band members who picked up the march (composed around 1970) from his repertoire.
