The Barnyards o' Delgaty

This set is part of the following collections:

Baryards o' Delgaty/Hopeful Lover Baryards o' Delgaty on its own
  • [TAB] Mandolin tab
  • [WHI] Whistle tab

The Barnyards o' Delgaty is a well known Scots "bothy ballad". There are two versions, a dance tune with an A and a B part, and a song version which is just the A part.

I got The Hopeful Lover from the playing of Mull accordionist Bobby MacLeod.

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