Thornton Jig traditional, arranged by the Tannahill Weavers
Marches in the Scottish pipe tradition are normally partnered by strathspeys and reels.  However having used this format so often in the past, we decided this time to opt instead for three very fine jigs.  Though this would be frowned upon in pipe competition we feel that with this combination of instruments it works well.
