- Graded Lessons, Lesson Level, Lessons, Level 3, Piobaireachd
Continuing this series of beginners introductions to some of the piobaireachd repertoires masterworks, John Mulhearn explores The Battle of Bealach nam Brog – The Battle of the Pass of the Shoes.
This series of lessons is not so much designed to teach the tunes, as to give an insight into some of the ‘bigger’ tunes, with the hope that it inspires curiosity, understanding and appreciation of these masterpieces, and of piobaireachd generally.
The Battle of Bealach nam Brog can be found in The Piobaireachd Society Book 9.
