Default Mystery tune - Bill Wakefield "Tunes in C"

Do any of you recognize the tune that begins around 1:07?

I've asked him, we'll see what he says. The man is a true gem.

I had a few moments chat with Bill. As he recalls the tunes, Initially there was Tom Clough's Spirit of the Border, followed by three tunes off of a vinyl compilation album of Hamish Moore's called Cauld Wind Pipes, that had been learned by ear some time ago. Bill thought that it might have been tunes in order perhaps "Old Bean Waltz", "The Red Herring", "Thinkin and Daen", and so on. If you had real interest, look at the album notes and go from there. Bill is an absolute master of variation sets, so it may take some listening.

Thank you so much! This is a fantastic lead. It does sound like the first tune is "Spirit of the Border." I couldn't find Moore's versions of those other tunes, so I just went ahead and purchased the Cauld Wind Pipes LP. I'm desperate to learn this tune! Now I just have to hit up a friend with a record player once it arrives.

Thank you again for reaching out!
