BLACK DONALD THE PIPER (Domnall Dub an Piobaire). AKA and see "Cameron Gathering," "Lochiel's March (2)," "Pibroch of Donald Dhu (1)/Domhnall Dubh/Donuil Dubh [1]." Irish, Double Jig. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune appears to be Scottish in origin, and the name certainly is, for Mac Dhomhnuill Duibh (Black {Mac}Donald) is the Gaelic patronymic of Cameron of Lochiel.
