This jig was composed by Pipe Major Alexander « Sandy » Hain (from a family of pipers) in honour of another piper, Donald McKillop.
As for the Reels, there are many tempi to play a jig, ranged from about 120 to 136, according to the piper or his audience (dancers or listeners). The tune is of course essential for choosing a beat. That being said, tempi under 130 are often a good option to preserve all the musicality and the grace notes clarity.
The jigs submitted here follow usually a tempo of 122 BPM for being played together during my show : that is of course only an indicative beat, as a working base.
