Description

A sinewy and haunting hanter dro from Brittany, here set in B-minor for Scottish-style pipes, with an original harmony part by Timothy Cummings.  This hanter dro was sourced from the Battlefield Band’s Celtic Hotel (1987) album, and was recently recorded by Wheezer & Squeezer on track 10 of ‘The Wind Among the Reeds‘ album.  The title translates to “On the Hennebont side”, and may refer to being the Hennebont side of the Blavet river in Brittany (France). Chord symbols included.

Audio sample, from ‘The Wind Among the Reeds’, featuring Border pipes (with bass drone tuned to B). In this sample, the pipes are first heard playing the harmony against the accordion’s melody, and then the melody at 0:37 (with the accordion on a different harmony line):
