A traditional Scottish folk song/tune.  It finds itself played in various styles, and is also used as a hymn tune.

I present you with the (well "a") .pdf version and an animated play-along score - it's a nice, simple little tune - enjoy...

There's something wholly inhuman about MIDI files; I barely recognised the tune. I guess music is the ultimate Turing test.

Kenneth McKellar did a super rendition (as always):

"Kelvin Grove", Kenneth McKellar

Thanks for posting the music, Bill; I'll add it to my musical tsondoku.

🙂 Couldn't agree more !!!

Thanks for the Kenneth McKellar link - I'd forgotten about his cover of the song.  The one I had in my own mind was the folk version by The Corries (with their strangely-crafted instruments) -

Lovely; it has a "Wild Mountain Thyme" feel to it in that setting.
