Set 69: Glenorchy
The Hills of Glenorchy/Walking the Floor


This set is part of the following collections:

The Hills of Glenorchy is a pipe jig, but very often these days it is played as a slow tune. It derives from a tune called The Braes of Glenorchy composed by Alexander Mackay (born c 1775), and is found in Ireland as The Jolly Corkonian.

Walking the Floor was composed by Pipe Major Jack Chisholm while trying to put his infant son to sleep.

This set and other tunes played at Scottish Sessions can be found in The Scottish Slow Session Volume 4, available from my Online Store.
