CORGARFF CASTLE [1]. Scottish, Slow March or "Pastoral Air" (4/4 time). G Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB (Skinner): AAB plus variations by Skinner CCD (Cranford). Composed by the great Scottish fiddler and composer J. Scott Skinner (1843-1927). According to Paul Cranford (1997), the tune was a favorite of the late Cape Breton fiddler Dan Hughie MacEachern. "Amongst the last generation of Cape Breton fiddlers Dan Hughie was not only one the the finest composers, he also had one of the largest repertoires of traditional tunes."
