Gold Medal Tunes for 2019
The following tunes have been set by the Music Committee of the Piobaireachd Society (PS) for the 2019 Gold Medal competitions at Oban and Inverness. They are played here in full on the practice chanter by Robert Wallace more or less as recorded by the Society but with some differences as handed down in oral tradition. These differences are usually, but not always, recorded in the notes to the tunes in the PS collection. By playing along with these recordings the piper may get an idea of the song of the tune and how to link its passages, phrases and variations. Robert strongly advises tuition from a qualified tutor for anyone entering these important competitions.
