Tune of the Day: Barrathon Barndance

Pipe march by Roddy Campbell

Today's tune was kindly contributed to our collection by its composer, piper Roddy Campbell from the Outer Hebrides, Scotland.

Once a year the 13-mile-long Barra M1 circular road becomes an athletics track to which competitors flock frae a' the airts, eager to spend a weekend sampling our beers and spirits and maybe having a wee run round the island while they're at it. On the Saturday evening a dance is held, at which that Barra favourite The Canadian Barndance is guaranteed to fill the dance-floor. This tune hopefully suits it well.
