Lesson Details

As noted in the Cabar Feidh Collection, “An old route march tune set as a jig. Until the early 18th Century, ‘cattle lifting’ was accepted in Lochaber as an honourable and necessary way of restocking after a severe winter or when food was scarce. It is not known after whom the ‘Thief of Lochaber’  is named, but Lochaber history is crammed with suitable candidates.” As well as the march to jig setting, Pipe Major Donald MacLeod added a third and fourth part to this tune.
