The tune is originally published in Jim Sutherland's collection, »The Flow
Country«, and carries the following explanation:
The partners are Jim Kilpatrick and Rab Mathieson. Rab is currently
Pipe Major, and Jim Drum Major of Shotts and Dykehead Pipe Band.
Jim Sutherland is a multi-instrumentalist and composer who is probably most
notable for his percussion work and as a member of »The Easy Club«, the
unsurpassed Scottish folk/gypsy jazz crossover band. The book came out in
1987, which was about the time that I lived in Edinburgh. Back then I had
occasion at various times to listen to Jim S and he is very, very good. I also
look back with fond memories to a concert in the Queen's Hall featuring the
Shotts and Dykehead pipe band together with the Battlefield Band (back in the
good old days when they had Brian McNeill and Dougie Pincock) and Dougie
Maclean, and I'm fairly convinced that Scottish music doesn't get much better
than what happened that night. Sigh.

I didn't know the significance of the tune but it is such an interesting story now I have. Thank you for bringing this up.
All the best
