Tune of the Day: Colonel McBain's Reel

Traditional Scottish reel

This reel first appeared in print in Robert Bremner's 2nd Collection of Scots Reels or Country Dances, published in London in 1768. The version we propose today is taken from a music manuscript by Aberdeenshire pastoral piper John Sutherland, dating back to c. 1785.
