Re: [Harp-L] list of Scottish/Irish tunes

You ca find many Scottish tunes, along with plenty of other traditional music, at the ABC music site. It's a bit geeky, but once you learn how to use it, it's a great resource.

ABC notation is a sort of musical shorthand that some trad musicians can read and even use for programming purposes. Any tune on the site can be displayed in ABC, in standard notation, or even played as a MIDI file:

The list you're talking about was originally from the Scots Moothie
Group in Edinburgh:

You could try asking them, but I suspect the answer you'll get is
"because you yell 'hoi!' halfway through the second part". ;-)

(For those who don't know this tune:    )
