Music

Glasgow Highlanders is a tune which people of a certain age in Scotland recognise as the theme tune to an old radio programmed called 'The McFlannels'. Although it's labelled as a strathspey, it should probably be classed as a schottische.

Croppie's Strathspey was composed by Alexander Givan (1752-1803) and it has the alternative name Mr Douglas of Springwood Park.



This set and other tunes played at the GFW Monday Slow Session can be found in The Glasgow Slow Session volumes 1 & 2, available from my Online Store.
