Tunes of the Month – May 2017

Howdy Y’all,

We’ll continue April’s trend of a hornpipe composed by someone who has spent a lot of time playing in Texas, and specifically The (Scottish) Rogues, with “Hollerin’ for Haggis” by Thomas Campbell. Also included are two 4 part jigs written by Tom, “Henry Blessed the Kitchen” and “Binker’s Birthday.” If you’ve ever played in a band with Tom, you would have received the music to these three tunes in a sheet music pack and Tom has generously allowed me to publish them for all to consume. These tunes are recorded on a couple of The Rogues’ albums. I have recorded Hollerin’ for Haggis before, it can be heard below following April’s tune of the month, The Rock.
