Glengarry’s March in the conventional style of playing today is heard often in the major contests. It is a strong and strident piece heavily dominated by the bottom hand notes. Glenn Brown takes a look at an alternative way of approaching the tune drawing from the Donald MacDonald manuscript. You can access the original score here, via the Piobaireachd Society’s extensive online catalogue of manuscripts. Alternatively you can purchase the re-edited 2006 edition from which Glenn will be teaching here.
