Tune of the Day: Mìcheal Forbes MacNeil, Eoligarry
Reel by Roddy Campbell
Today's tune was kindly contributed to our collection by its composer, piper Roddy Campbell from the isle of Barra in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland. He writes:
Mìcheal (note — English MichAEl, Gaelic MìchEAl). Mìcheal's early death some years ago was a big loss to us all in Barra. He played pipes, sang, and was one of the wittiest persons I have ever known. He and I met often in The Castlebay Bar and in fact became real boozum pals!
