Set 35: Take the High Road - reels
High Road to Linton/The Wind That Shakes the Barley

High Road to Linton
This set is part of the following collections:


Two standard session tunes. High Road to Linton existed in its original two-part version until accordionist Bobby MacLeod added parts 3 and 4; the 4-part setting is now universally played. This tune is also available alongside The Ale is Dear.

The Wind that Shakes the Barley is equally popular in Scotland and Ireland, both countries claiming it as their own. Being biased, I naturally think of it as Scottish!

This set and other tunes played at Scottish Sessions can be found in The Scottish Slow Session Volume 2, available from my Online Store.
