Battle of the Bridge of Perth – the first piece in the 2017 Set Tunes Series

(Page 1 of 1)

The 2017 Set Tunes Series by William Donaldson begins with “The Battle of the Bridge of Perth,” a composition rarely played by pipers unless prescribed for the major competitions.

Once again we thank Dr. Donaldson for his contribution to piping, by compiling and analyzing the various historical settings for piobaireachds played today.
