This is a version of a Scots reel, "The Brumley Brae" by William
Macpherson. The Brumley Brae is a hill in the town of Elgin, North-East
Scotland. Macpherson was a fiddler and a native of Elgin, born 1919,
died 1974. I know two distinct versions of this tune, one I presume to
be the original, the other worn slightly with time. If you're
interested I'll post 'em.
