Well, today we tackled the daunting Vaunting! This tune has several styles associated with it, especially Donald MacDonald's setting. We also have a listen to Robert Reid's interpretation of it. Enjoy!
Unfortunately, this class suffered from some technical difficulties, but we were able to salvage quite a bit of good stuff! Today we review student performances of Melbank's salute with the great Jack Taylor himself, and then we move on to a lesser-known tuned called "Lord MacDonald's Lament."
This is a class where Bruce Gandy works through the Old Men of the Shells (a Senior level set tune) with Jack Taylor. The great part - we get to watch! Enjoy this great tune, in a fun "master class" format.
This was our first 2013 Set Tunes class, where we covered two of the Silver Medal tunes. Melbank's is a repetitive tune, where the beauty is in making the most of the repetition. All the Men is a tune that requires your own interpretation, as it comes from the ancient Campbell Canntaireachd collection.
