This is a very stylish reel by the accordionist Jim Johnstone. It was named for the bassist in the legendary "Na h-̉ganaich" who were at the forefront of the Gaelic singing revival in the seventies
About the tunes.
A pipe Strathspey with a superb driving rhythm and unforgetable melody. It was written by Pipe Major William Lawrie (who was the tutor's grandfather's cousin).
In piping it's very common to play a set of tunes consisting of a March, Strathspey and Reel. The march is most often a 2/4 march. In this set I've diverged slightly from tradition and it's kicked off by the atmospheric 6/8 march "Ben Gullion".
