St. Kilda Wedding | Bowing Down Home

About this tune

This tune appears in The Athole Collection. Notation for a version played by Francis MacDonald is in The Fiddle Music of Prince Edward Island.

St. Kilda is a small archipelago located about 40 miles northwest of the outermost Hebrides. After a long period of decline and depopulation, the last inhabitants requested evacuation to the mainland in 1930. The Islands are now maintained as a wildlife sanctuary.
