Lesson Details

MacCrimmon’s Sweetheart, or Maol Donn as it’s also known, can almost be regarded as a right of passage for aspiring piobaireachd players. It is a medium length tune and can be classed as a fogailte tune, based on the idea of using the type of crunluath variation as criteria for classification. As with the other lessons in this series this lesson makes use of several audio examples to outline some differences in approach that pipers may take, with the aim of improving your understanding of these popular tunes.
