The Drunken Piper: Tune 5 of 52

Fiddle and beer

I learned it as The Drunken Piper but it is also known as The Bull’s March, March Of The Meeatoiteen Bull, and has various other names I won’t even try to spell.

It’s a simple march, easy to learn and fun to play.

Here it is:

Join me next week for tune #6 from A Tune A Week. I hope you have a safe and musical start to the new year!
