An unforgettable Appalachian-style hymn melody restyled from the original 19th-cent. Scottish hymn tune composed by Neil Dougall. The Appalachian-flavored version was paired with the familiar “Amazing Grace” lyrics and featured on The Birds’ Flight, a 2021 album by Tim Cummings, Pete Sutherland, and Brad Kolodner.
You can hear this version of the tune (and the rest of The Birds’ Flight album) on Bandcamp: https://birchenmusic.bandcamp.com/track/kilmarnock
If you’re looking for the harmonized setting of ‘KILMARNOCK’ that’s closer to the originally-composed Scottish hymn, and was featured in Piping Today magazine, please see here.
