    Name that tune . . . Please?

    To all our pipers and pipe music experts:

    I received this E-mail from a good friend and piper recently. He has returned to the pipes after several years, and is re-building his repertoire.

    Hello Bill,

    Aside from being bored hope you are all well. I have story to tell and then I'm going to ask your advice/opinion. I listen to many types of music but not too long ago I came across a tune being played by the Irish Guard on their way back to barracks after changing the guard. The recording was made March 10 ,2018. They play four tunes Kelly, The Boy from Killane and, The Minstrel Boy, then one I don't know and they finish with Wearing of the Green.

    You may have guessed already but the one I don't know I would really like to have in my repertoire. I have searched high and low on the web, reached out to several noteworthy pipers in Canada ... and I've come up empty handed. I even tried Kneller Hall the hub of British military music, unfortunately they are "working from home " and their computers will not handle the volume of traffic they [get] at work. They sent me a form e mail.

    Then I got an idea X Marks the Scot must have some keen pipers on its base? How difficult would it be to canvas X Marks the Scot? Would you be able to help with this idea?

    John

    Although not a piper I recognised two of the tunes, but having a certain antipathy for things Irish, I don't know the other two - but don't restrict yourself to pipers.

    Pipe tune

    I think the last tune before wearing of the green is "the Sash".

    I agree. It's sometimes called "The Sash My Father Wore".

    I think they start to play the Sash at the very end when they walk past the camera.

    Pretty rough recording though.

    It is The Sash and you might want to warn your friend that it is a tune with a considerable amount of baggage that will arouse strong feelings in some audiences.

    Thank you. Can you give me a hint without breaking the rules?

    It is an Ulster Unionist anthem. The Irish Guards are one of very few bands who would play it alongside The Wearing of the Green - they try to honour all traditions in Ireland.
