Gatherer's Grand Collection

(27-09-2016, 08:24 AM)Trish Santer Wrote: Re "my" version of "The Balkan Hills": I first found the tune in Nigel's "Musical Museum" book when looking for tunes to fit our last gig in St Mary's Cathedral which was on the theme of "Women of the West End". One of these pioneering ladies was Dr Elsie Inglis, who served in miltary hospitals in Serbia during WW1. The version in that book has virtually no dotted notes or snaps: I found the version I used elsewhere online, and it seemed to correspond with a couple of YouTubes of pipers playing it. There are other clips of fiddlers playing it, which, while played dotted, use fewer snaps than the pipe version

I played that version at Sandy Bell's one Monday and George Current said that was the version he usually played,  and was most usually played in sessions, though he was aware there were others. It's not currently on the moothie group's playlist, but that may change.
