Default Re: MacGregor of Rora

a.k.a. MacGregor's Search. From the notes of Bonnie Rideout's Scotland's Fiddle Piobairachd written by John Purser."...first appears in Daniel Dow's collection of 1776and again in KEITH Norman MacDonald's Gesto Collection of 1895...it belongs to a family of tunes...Tha gruagach san Aodan-The Maid of Edin in Patrick MacDonald"s collection of 1784...in a slightly different form is a well known Perthshire air, Bothan airigh am Braigh Raineachd-The Shieling on the Braes of Rannoch. It can also beheard on Hamish Moore's Stepping on the Bridge. A real golden oldie.
