Killicrankie - March

 A traditional song made popular in Scotland by the Corries. This commemorates the battle of Killiecrankie.

There are several versions, but as a song, the gracings should ideally be kept light. This is what Lindsay Davidson actually plays and is not 'dumbed down'.
At the end of teh second lie you will see what may be your first contact with a 'hara'. This is a kind of doubling which is traditionally not spoken about, and doesn't have its own proper name.
Instructions on how to play it are here and here.

You can hear this being played by Lindsay Davidson on the video below:
