Lesson Details

It seems a travesty that some tunes are not played because they do not have a ‘real’ name, but it sometimes seems that this is the case – particularly with the smaller pieces. Nameless (Hiharin himtra hihodrodroo) – the canntaireachd in brackets is how one Nameless tune is differentiated from another – was discovered in the first collection of the Campbell Canntaireachd manuscripts, and is shown in this lesson from the Piobaireachd Society Collection Vol. 13. It features some demanding top hand work, using both embari and cheredi high G movements, as well as the rare chelalo and high A double echo. All of these features combine to create quite an unusual and attractive piece.
