    Tunes from 17th Century Scotland

    Fenton, Mo. — Mel Bay Publications, Inc. has announced the release of Tunes from 17th Century Scotland, arranged for mandolin by Rob MacKillop.

    Many great Scottish traditional tunes such as "Flowers Of The Forest" can be traced back to the 17th century—a period when writing down tunes in manuscript collections for the lute was of high interest.

    Rob MacKillop has created very playable arrangements for the mandolin featuring 25 popular tunes from the Skene, Balcarres, Panmure and Straloch manuscripts. This is a wonderful collection of dance tunes and airs, most of which have not been available for the mandolin until now.

    The notation is in treble clef with tablature for GDAE tuning. Includes access to online audio featuring Rob's performance of each piece. Get ready to explore a wonderful new take on old repertoire!
