Traditional and contemporary folk from the British Isles

TSCD487 VARIOUS ARTISTS ~ THE NORTHUMBRIAN SMALL PIPES

The Northumbrian Small Pipes have, at various times, been called seductive, wild, plaintive, lyrical, exciting and sophisticated. These apparently contradictory descriptions result from the unusual versatility of the instrument as well as the differences in the tonal quality of individual sets of pipes. Thus it is possible for each performer to develop his own characteristic style of playing. This album is compiled from some of the most outstanding performances on the instrument ever recorded.
