A Flame of Wrath for Squinting Patrick [Vintage]


In this class, we cover one of Eric's favorite piobaireachd, A Flame of Wrath for Patrick Coagach. With a short history lesson to understand the disposition of this tune, we discuss it in great detail. Being one of the more unique piobaireachd in that it is not simply a lament or a salute or an ancient walking song, we discuss the nuance of how to approach the tune and bring out the impending doom that Donald Mor MacCrimmon brought about to the village of Kintail in vengeance of his brother's murder
