We continue our 2017 Set Tunes Series with the obscure and peculiarly-named piobaireachd, “Drizzle on the Stone.”

Dr. William Donaldson analyzes the piece, looking at all of the known published settings. He includes an audio file of the various renditions as he reads them.

“Drizzle on the Stone” is the most recent inclusion in the series, which numbers more than 170 piobaireachds and close a thousand settings, making it the most comprehensive compendium of ceol mor in a single place.

TIP OF THE DAY
Do not be afraid to recognize that you do not know as much as others. Even if you have played in non-competitive bands for your entire career, and have never had formal instruction, do not hesitate to try to ask others for help.
