Wind on the Heath

The Wind on the Heath was arranged by Alex Sim. Alexander Sim was born in Birnam, Perthshire (near Dunkeld). His father was also a fiddler and, from an early age, Alec was taught by James Macintosh, fiddler/composer from Dunkeld. Later, as a postal worker, he went to Aberdeen to work, and there in 1928 he founded the Aberdeen Strathspey & Reel Society.  Sim published "The Wind on the Heath (A Scottish Pastoral)" in 1930.
