This classic 18th century Scottish strathspey has spawned many variants including Christy Campbell (a modal, raised bass, Cape Breton strathspey setting) and The First Month of Summer (an Irish reel). The Skye Collection setting above is popular in Cape Breton - the first recording being Angus Allan Gillis in 1936. Some other recordings include Ashley MacIsaacs', Fine Thank You Very Much and John Campbell, Cape Breton Violin Music
