    A tune I wrote

    I thought yall might enjoy this tune I've been working on rewriting. Its origins are as such.

    A poem called Raglan Road was put to music by the Dubliners. The music the chose for it was the Traditional Irish air Dawning of the Day. I attained a copy of pipe music for both Dawning of the Day and Raglan road.. but didn't like Raglan road, so I chose to rewrite it to match the way it is typically sung.

    What came from that is what is in this recording. I hope you all enjoy it.

    ps.

    more can be learned about each tune/song/poem on wikipedia.

    Nice job, Mischieftech. What would you think about bringing the pipes to the next kilt night on June 13?

    My non-piper friends always suspect me of making up tunes.
