This tune also known as Setting a Course for Lewis is played in the Inveraray and District Pipe Band 2019 Medley. In his class, Cameron Drummond discussed how Gaelic Airs are often songs. This is a beautiful rendition of Togail Curs Air Leodhas sung by Christine Primrose.
From its origin in Scottish clans and culture, the Great Highland Bagpipe has long been associated with the military.
Especially in more recent history, the Highland Regiments of the British Armed Forces, and some of the Lowland Regiments as well, have had bagpipers since their first formation.
The United States Armed Forces has historically had a very close relationship with the British – so the spread of the bagpipes was inevitable.
