  1. As usual, very nice performance! And have you noticed that the Irish always seem to seek refuge to the east, on the more attractive island of Scotland (usually somewhere between Aberdeen and Dover)? Not the other way around? Just speculation, mind you. And superior malt. Maybe…

  2. The music of Scotland and Ireland was there long, long before my consciousness awakened. And now that my beard is grey, it still exists, as young and beautiful as before! The sound of whistles, fiddles and pipes has grown so close to my heart. It has accompanied me all my life like a beautiful, bright undertone. I’m looking forward to seeing Breabach next week in Berlin! ❤️
