The Top 10 Christmas tunes
Donald Shaw Ramsay was sort of a Santa Claus of piping. Jocular and always giving through some great compositions. The four-parted jig, “Snowball,” which appears in his Edcath Collection Book 2 sort of tumbles along, like a snowball going downhill, or the year towards Christmas or, come to think of it, the tune might well have been about his fluffy white cat, Snowball. You hear many of DSR’s tunes a lot. “Snowball” . . . not so much.
