I’ve been delving into the tune book The Airs and Melodies Peculiar to the Highlands of Scotland and The Isles this week. It’s full of tunes chiefly acquired during the period 1715 to 1745 and it was edited by Captain Simon Fraser. I play two airs from the book – Lady to Her Husband Who Was Killed at the Battle of Culloden and Hard is my fate with the fabulous David McGuinness on harmonium and dulcitone.
