#TuesdayTune ~ "The Gael"

Hello friends and welcome to today's #TuesdayTune linky party!  I'm so glad you stopped by to visit and hear my favourite song for the week!

In honor of National Tartan Day, a celebration of Scottish heritage, I am sharing a Scottish song and joining in with the Tartan Parade link up with Sarah at Hyacinths for the Soul

Tartan Day is a celebration of Scottish heritage on April 6, the date on which the Declaration of Arbroath was signed in 1320. The United States Senate recognized April 6 as Tartan Day in 1998.

In Australia, wearing tartan on July 1 has been encouraged since 1989, the anniversary of the repeal of the 1747 Act of Proscription that banned the wearing of tartan

Today's #TuesdayTune is "The Gael", the theme from The Last of the Mohicans by The Pipes and Drums of the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards. This piece is from their "Highland Cathedral" DVD.  The music is composed by Dougie Maclean.

I hope you enjoy this version of "The Gael"!
