It reminds me a lot of Jock Stewart, but that’s a song and just not quite the same, especially since I don’t think it has a second part.

The tune is a Cape Breton fiddler Jerry Holland composition entitled In Memory of Herbie Macleod. It is found in Jerry 's second collection of fiddle music you get a copy of the book from Cranford Publications. Elizabeth's Big Coat is actually a reel known as The Big able bodied Lad and the Gaelic words for Big Coat are used in another tune from the North Shore of Cape Breton, both melodies appear in my new collection of pipe music. I published a setting of the fiddle tune West Mabou in my first book of tunes, available from my website. Alasdair changed a note or two by doubling up on a few melody notes, but the tune is actually a fiddle tune which I compressed the melody to fit on the pipes.
