Default "Outlander Tunes"

Just wondering, as one who has never watched Outlander, what other pipe tunes are used in the show besides the Skye Boat Song?



Yes, I know Skye Boat Song is a song, and is sung as the opening theme, but I'll be playing for a surprise birthday party for a lady who is an Outlander fan.
Any suggestions?

There are few other instances. Later in the series the Flower of Scotland will be introduced, though not likely on pipes, most probably on guitar. If you stick with traditional tunes I think it will have the feel you are looking for. Might try Mingulay boat song, Scotland the brave, and be prepared to play Amazing Grace, everyone thinks that song is in everything.

Thanks,, Anndrah. I was thinking some of the usual Jacobite airs, just have never seen the show, so didn't know what other tunes might be used in it.


The lyrics to Mingulay Boat Song were actually written to an older pipe tune- Creag Gruanach (sp?) I often play that with Skye Boat.

you could try some of the waulking tunes like Cutting Bracken. There was some waulking done in outlander and these tunes would have been relevant for those times. some simple strathspeys I would think would be suitable too.

Thanks, Ian. I'll throw some waulking songs into the mix, along with the usual Jacobite standbys.

There's a couple of highland pipers playing a medley, in season 2 episode 9 `Je Suis Pres,' to call the troops to training. The first tune in the medley sounds a bit like "Follow My Highland Soldier." The second I don't recognize. The third sounds like "Hills of Glenorchy."

N.b., The pipers start playing after 09:20.

I heard some version of Coming Through the Rye. We're on about episode six of season one.

The show, at least so far, really doesn't make use of music the way it could. Skye Boat Song is probably the only thing anyone would recognize as being from the show, at least as far as season one goes.

They did have someone play some piob I think. On combed and beaded pipes that appeared to have SS mounts ;-) And a harp with nylon strings. The harper also played recorder, which seems possible but I've never heard of that.

But in a show about time travel I suppose anachronisms aren't really possible ;-)

Correction: In Outlander season 2 episode 9 `Je Suis Prest,' two separate tunes are played on the highland pipes to call the troops to training. The first tune, Johnny Cope, starts at 09:20. The second tune The Hills of Glenorchy, starts at 10:20.

In season 4 episode 3, "The False Bride," starting at 44:23 there's a piper playing "Lord Lovat's Lament."
