This series of recordings is mainly intended for instructional purposes but is also of great historic interest and value. Edited by Norman Matheson and Robert Wallace.
‘An authentic record of the teachings of two men who dedicated their lives to ceol mor and and to promulgating the instructions they received from John MacDonald of Inverness. They are nothing less than an inalienable link with the past and genuine oral tradition.’ (Robert Wallace)
‘A really fascinating recording.’ (The Tartan and the Green)
‘This CD is a must for everyone interested in piobaireachd.’ (Malcolm MacRae, past president of The Piobaireachd Society)
