Mass Band Tunes

Hi folks

As you know the local pipe band association here has standard tunes --- but I find them a little confusing since the Piper Scores and the Drum Scores dont line up. However given that there is a mass band coming up the official list is as follows :-

the Pipers book contains

  • 4/4 Marches Scotland the Brave/ The Rowan Tree / Bonnie Gallowa’ / Bonnie Lass o’ Fyvie
  • 4/4 Marches Will Ye No Come Back Again / We’re No’ Awa’ Tae Bide Awa’
  • 4/4 Marches The Badge of Scotland / Thomas Sander / Leaving Liverpool
  • 6/8 Marches Bonny Dundee / A Hundred Pipers
  • Retreats (3/4) The Green Hills of Tyrol / When the Battle’s O’er
  • 2/4 Marches The Brown Haired Maiden / Marie’s Wedding / The Barren Rocks of Aden
  • Slow Air Amazing Grace

but for the Drummers we have

  • Syke Boat Song Air
  • Highland Laddie 2/4
  • Loudens Bonnie Woods / Orange and Blue STR
  • Bonnie Dundee 6/8
  • Brown Haired Maiden 2/4
  • Scotland the Brave 2/4 (and, yes the pipers have it a s 4/4)
  • Rowan Tree 4/4
  • Blue Bonnets O'er the border 6/8
  • Green Hills 3/4
  • My home Air
  • Jock Wilsons Ball Reel
So will hazard a guess that the Tartan Day tunes will come from the above list --- but need to wait and see what they are
