Rozza Tune Req: Jimmy Garson's March or King William's? (12) Tune Req: Jimmy Garson's March or King William's? 16 Jun 15


According to BLSounds, the tune I know as "Jimmy Garson's March" has the real title "King William's March", but according to the sleeve notes on "Swan-Upmanship", the Old Swan Band CD,:Jimmy Garson was an Orcadian musician recorded by Peter Kennedy in 1955. One of the tunes he played was an untitled march tune, which Peter Kennedy told Paul Burgess he decided to call "King William's March", just because he felt it should have a title. We don't subscribe to any extra-musical association this tune may have, so prefer to call it "Jimmy Garson's March" as it's a fine melody!"

So...Jimmy Garson's March or King William's March?
