There's a video on YouTube ( youtube.com/watch?v=ny2beJky_KM) of Buddy McMaster playing a set starting with Neil Gow's Lament. There are seven tunes in the set I think. I've learned them all (to my own modest standard!) but I'd like to also learn the names of them all. Does anyone know the names of the other six tunes?

One of the strathspeys is Athol Brose, I believe. The second reel is Jenny Dang the Weaver. The fourth (last) is Southern Melodies. They're all widely known and played in Cape Breton; I just forget the rest of the names.

Thanks so much. Senior's moment. I didn't know there were comments below the video. Don't have a 12 year old kid around here to explain all this tech stuff to me. BJ

Fyi, brose is ground up oats, similar to couscous, add hot water to make a porridge.

Athole brose is when you add whiskey, too. :-)



 



Thanks for posting.
