Scottish Medley performed by Hollis Easter and Susie Petrov

Hollis Easter and Susie Petrov submitted this home recording of a medley of traditional Scottish tunes in advance of their concert at the Canton Unitarian Universalist Church on October 9, 2004. Susie's piano accompanies Hollis on the Scottish small pipes in a medley that includes Eliza Ross's Reel, a traditional tune from the d'Oyley manuscript, Pipe Major George S. McLennan's classic reel The Little Cascade (allegedly composed in honor of a dripping tap); and a nameless Gaelic reel learned from the playing of Allan MacDonald and Fred Morrison.  Go to full article
