I’ve given you three files here, the first is the complete arrangement of the set in written out instructions. The other two are the compact scores for Captain Leno’s and Major Mackie. I’ve also made a video of the rhythmic variation for the B sections of Major Mackie.
Here is the tune from Monday 17th, Peat Fire Flame, aka The Fireside Reel. This Scottish tune was first published in 1734 and remains a popular tune especially for Scottish Country Dancing. Words were added on 1921 by Kenneth McCleod and this version was popularised by The Corries on their 1977 album Peat Fire Flame.
Here is the second tune in our new set, Major Mackie, or Major Mackie’s Jig. This is tune from the late 1800’s, it turns up in English, Scottish, Canadian and American traditions. It was first published in the ever popular series Kerr’s Merry Melodies.
Here are the dots, followed by videos of the tune and rhythm parts.
