Letters A NewTune for Alasdair Sir, My father, Angus


Lawrie, suggested I should send this wee 2/4 in to you. The music came to me shortly after hearing about Alasdair Gillies’ untimely death. I was not sure if a tune had already been composed in his name, but I offer this one up and, if you think it is worthy, I would be happy to let the PipingTimes publish it.
