Default 10 part reels

I thought that I heard a G1 band play a 10-part version of Charlie's Welcome but now listening to YouTube I can't find it.

Pekaar lists versions up to 8 parts, and that's what I'm hearing on YouTube.

The parts in various orders, but more or less the same 8 parts.

I would also like to listen to any other competition reels in 10 parts.

Thanks! Richard

Looks like I need to implement an “anything but piob” search function in Pekaar.

Ever since I heard Charlie's Welcome on one of Patrick's recordings 10 years ago I have been in love with that tune. If there are more parts to it that would be brilliant!

The 8-part settings I'm hearing are generally similar to one of the following:

1) Peter R MacLeod Jr's setting in United States Bicentennial Collection Vol 2

2) Donald MacLeod's setting in PM Donald MacLeod Collection Book 6

The Peter MacLeod setting has the B minor parts 3rd and 4th.

The Donald MacLeod setting has the B minor parts 7th and 8th.

There's a Grey (Ann Grey?) setting that basically follows the Donald MacLeod setting but has the 8th part in A, thus it only has one B minor part, the 7th part.

There's an excellent 10 part setting of Pretty Marion.

If you're looking for 10-part reels, you'll find a lot of them in the Lowland/Border piping literature ( also 10 part hornpipes. triple hornpipes, etc.)

If you compare D. MacLeod's to D. Johnstone's setting, there are 10 unique parts. MacLeod's has the darado part (8th part) and a 3rd variation of various birling (6th part) whereas Johnstone's has a B minor part that starts with a B doubling, though it is not written that way, (4th part) and another part that mixes birling with taorluaths (8th part).

There's also Duncan Johnston's setting which I understand is the basis for what Field Marshal play. I wonder how similar it is to MacLeod's.


Is there anyone playing that 10 part setting, Colin? Wouldn't mind having a go at it

I've heard a 10 part version mentioned. I learned the Willie Ross version. John Wilson has a 6 part setting in his Book 2 with 2 parts in it that are different from the Ross setting. I was thinking the 10 part setting would be something like that? Parts from a few setting put together.

Off the top of my head Inverary play the Donald MacLeod setting if you want to compare.
