Scots Sangs Fur Schools

Traditional and new Scots songs for use in Scottish schools

The Hen's March To The Midden
-1:08

You can hear the fiddle imitating the sound of the hen cackling as it marches to the farm dung heap hoping to scratch there and find food - perhaps worms? Yuck! 

Small people like to join in the hen's cackling, saying 'Cud-a-kit!' 


This tune is at least 200 years old.

The piano accompaniment is in a typical Scottish style.

The tune is performed by Colin Campbell, fiddle, and Katherine Campbell, piano.
