Summary

Bob Nicol sings the ground and first two variations of the ceòl mòr 'An Ceapadh Eucorach' [The Unjust Incarceration] in canntaireachd form. He then demonstrates how each line should be 'pointed', especially the cadences.

The story of the tune is of a MacKay, unjustly put into the stocks. In the first line he is lamenting his position, in the second he is appealing for help and in the third he thinks of revenge. The contributor illustrates this in canntaireachd. He points out and discusses the importance of cadences in this tune.
