Farewell to the Creeks

This set is part of the following collections:

This tune was written in 1915 while its composer, Pipe Major James Robertson of Portsoy, Aberdeenshire, was a prisoner of war. The tune was used for a song written by Hamish Henderson called The 51st Highland Regiment’s Farewell to Sicily.

This set and other tunes played at Scottish Sessions can be found in The Scottish Slow Session Volume 3, available from my Online Store.
