Lesson Details

Chris Armstrong takes a look through Arthur Bignold of Lochrosque, a 2/4 march bu John MacColl that fits into the ‘double-tonic’ pattern of phrase construction. Sir Arthur Bignold (1850 – 6 February 1918) was a Unionist Party politician in Scotland who served as the Member of Parliament (MP) for Wick Burghs from 1900 to 1910.

The score can be found in several collections but the standard setting commonly adopted for the competition platform appears in Willie Ross’s Book 4. There is a very interesting article about the history of the tune on pipes|drums written by Jim MacGillivray.
