Tune of the Day: Dougal The Servitor
Jig 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.
Who was “Dougal the Servitor“?
He was of the Macgregors of Fortingall and Lismore, for ever associated with The Book of The Dean of Lismore, early to mid-16th century. He wrote a genealogy of the Macgregors which traced their descent from the old Celtic monarchs of Scotland.
