OT: 6 November 1915 – Eilean A’ Cheo “Piobaireachd and MacCrimmon Canntaireachd”



The Oban Times, 6 November, 1915

Piobaireachd and MacCrimmon Canntaireachd

Sir,–In your issue of the 9th inst., “Patrick Og” asks if there is anyone alive who knows anything about the real MacCrimmon notation, and I beg to reply in the affirmative. Mr. Simon Fraser, Australia, appears to have a thorough knowledge of this notation, and it is a pity that he is so far away from his native land, as the valuable information in his possession should be recorded along with other records.

If “Patrick Og” will kindly forward his name to me, through you, Mr. Editor, I will be glad to give him any information I can on the MacCrimmon Canntaireachd, which was a real verbal notation.–I am, etc.,

Eilean A’ Cheo
