Default Re: Cock of the North

I know, but that is the trouble with a lot of pipe music, if it has been around for more than about three weeks and non-pipers can whictle it, it tends to be classed as traditional.

William Marshall was a fiddler and wrote a lot of strathspeys and reels and his patron was the Duke of Gordon (the Cock of the North) so I just wondered if anyone knew anything? This may be better suited to the History forum.
