Composer's Corner I Pipe Major Tam Imrie (Late)
Ricahard Tallach discovered these unpublished tunes at the bottom of a pipe box when he purchased his Lawrie pipes off a Mrs.Helen Brand. The pipes had belonged to her late husband, Andrew Brand.
One of the tunes, dated 28.1.38, was nameless, and I named it after Andrew Brand, who had been in a pipe band with the composer as pipe major.
Tam Imrie, was the Pipe Major of the Methil Colliery Pipe Band.
