Ca The Ewes Trad. Scottish Tune collected by Robert Burns
Ca' The Ewes To The Knowes
When I first heard this traditional old Scottish folk tune, I was struck by its beauty and arranged it for orchestra. The solo violin should be played in the style of Scottish traditional folk fiddle music. Ca' The Ewes Tae The Knowes means 'drive the ewes (sheep) to the knolls' (knolls are small hills or mounds), in old Scot's dialect. This was the title of a traditional song collected by Robert Burns. He adapted it with minor alterations and two new stanzas. This version was published in the "Scots Musical Museum" (a collection of Scottish folk songs) in 1790. Burns further modified the song in 1794 and it was published by George Thomson.
