Back to Chisholm (The)
CHISHOLM, THE ('Stoigh leam fein an Siosalach). Scottish, Strathspey. F Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. "Though the editor has applied the name of the Laird of Chisholm to this air, he is not positive but it may belong to some other branch of his family, probably a handsome young fellow, killed in Culloden, whose widow composes an air to his memory, introduced in this work" (Fraser).
