The Rowan Piper

Post by philamor » Thu Jan 22, 2009 12:22 pm

In Scotland, the downpipe from the guttering on the side of the houses is known as the rowan pipe, and often the guttering and downpipe are referred to as the same, the rowan's. I have composed a wee tune about a tradesman in our area who, among many other odd jobs, cleans the guttering, AKA rowan's, in our area for anyone who wishes, around the end of January.

If you cannot write a tune down that you can play so that they are identical, how can you truly say you know the tune!

Sorry, folks, whata mistaka to maka - I was reviewing some of my tunes and could no believe that I called this The Rowan Piper - it should be The Roan Piper. The tune is the same, only the title is changed - sorry.
