Archival Tune of the Month: Pipe Bands at the Lochiel Social

Oct 15, 2014 | Archival Tune, Tune of the Month

This month we’ll feature some bagpipe tunes. These were recorded at a Lochiel social held at St. Alexandria’s Church sometime in the 1960s. The recording starts with an introduction, followed by a pipe band playing The Road to the Isles (the track ends quite abruptly). The second track is a pipe band playing Back to Bennachie and El Alamein.

This recording was part of the collection of reel-to-reel tapes donated by Duncan MacDonald and can be found on Large Reel 16, Side 1.
