access the music.


The air to a song by Carolina Oliphant, Lady Nairne - dubbed "the Strathearn Poetess" - published in 1840, but only credited to her after her death. The Rowan Tree song is about an actual tree where she and her family played as youngsters.

This set and other tunes played at the SMG Wednesday Slow Session can be found in The Scottish Slow Session Volume 1, available from my Online Store.
