about

It's unusual to play G-Major tunes on an A-chanter, but here it is achieved by placing a piece of tuning tape to flatten the C# down to a C-natural. It's surely cheating, which makes it all the more fun! 'Stony Point', or 'Wild Horse', is more commonly known as 'Pig Town Fling' to Irish musicians (who typically only play the first and third parts).
