Sons of Glencoe

"Sons of Glencoe" was a tune popular with fiddler's rallies and Strathspey & Reel societies, so perhaps forum member JAJ will have a copy. Failing that I have four recordings of it in the attic, so I can do a transciption for you.

I haven't heard of the second one.

Nigel,

We have a Mandolin club in Alexandria, runs on a Wednesday nights  and we are looking to learn some new pieces. Ron, our oldest member (82), plays both these tunes, but as he only learns to play by ear and has no music reading or writing skills, were were hoping to get the dots so we all could play along with him. 
Ron is now partially blind, suffers from loss of hearing and arthritis in the hands but he can put us all to shame with his playing skills and music knowledge, plucking tunes and songs out of his head at a drop of a hat.  All his instruments he built himself, of course, he is unable to do this anymore, but is a great help in setting up our instruments.  

He also plays and sing a local tune "The Braes of Bonhull" which is on the Cutha album "On the Braes" which I have not been able to get a copy as yet.

I have probably got the name of the second one wrong, so I will ask again this week, or maybe make a recording of it.

Cheers

Drew
