Bonnie Glen Tanar
BONNIE GLEN TANAR. Scottish. Composed by Peter Milne (1824-1908), a Scottish fiddler, one of J. Scott Skinner's teachers and, later, a fiddling partner. Milne managed to make a living playing theater venues all over Scotland, but became addicted to opium in the drug laudanum, which he originally took as a pain-killer. Milne ended his life in reduced circumstances, busking on the ferry that crossed the Firth of Forth. The tune is considered a companion piece to Skinner's "Bonnie Lass o' Bon Accord," and among the best of Milne's compositions.
