Flowers of the Forest is an ancient Scottish folk tune commemorating the defeat of the Scottish army of James IV at the Battle of Flodden in September 1513. Due to the content of the lyrics and reverence for the tune, it is one of the few tunes that many pipers will perform in public only at funerals or memorial services. It is played at the Bitterroot Celtic Games & Gathering to honor those who have passed in the last year. to submit a name please fill out the form below or submit at the Bitterroot Celtic Games & Gathering information booth.
