Donald MacLellan
from Traditional Fiddle Music of Cape Breton
Vol. 4, MacKinnon's Brook

In Cape Breton this tune circulated as a traditional strathspey titled The Thistle long before being identified in The Caledonian Collection (by Alastair Hardie, circa 1980). Donald MacLellan's setting, transcribed above from his performance on MacKinnon's Brook differs from what is given in Jerry Holland, the 2nd Collection.
