Default Tune Identification - Dysart and Dundonald Band

Our band plays this tune (https://youtu.be/ARtfEtgxWHo?t=239) as a two parted 4/4.

I haven't been able to find it anywhere else under the same name that we use.

Any idea what it's called?

Greetings, Freeman, and to All,


Well... shooting completely in the dark... and
from the hip... as I have never heard this tune
before... it sounds to me... an older tune... and
perhaps... from around WW I... or between the
1st and 2nd World War.


(This is, and of course... thinking that you refer
to the first and lead-in tune to the vid.)



But and again... mine is only... purely a guess...


By what name does you lot call it?


Regards to you... and to All,


Pip01




As a Post Script:


The vid... is absolutely magnificent!!... and should be used as an
on-going tool... both for piping education... but also for enlarging
perspectives!!


As I'd not previously heard the tune... neither had I seen this vid,
and I thank you very much for both!!

The tune they played marching into the courtyard and forming up I played in the 1980s - a four part 4/4 called "Nameless". I think they played three parts. It comes to mind occasionally and I can get through a couple of parts. The music is around home somewhere. What they were playing going through the woods I've never heard before.

The melody starting at the 4 minute mark in the video we call MacMaster Street - named after our bands old pipe major.

Dysart and Dundonald only play the first part in the video, and then we have another part added to make a 2 parted 4/4.

I'd like to see the sheet music if you can dig it up Greenpipe.

The tune is McCarty Street, a two parted 4/4 march, by Karl L. Walford. It can be found on page 18 on his Tartan Tribe, Big, Little Band Book 1 collection.
