  1. Jarlath is to piping in 2016 what Davy Spilane was to piping in the 80’s…but Jarlath has taken progressive piping to a whole other level! In my mind, the best piper on earth at this moment…..

  2. And as to border and highland pipes, when I first heard Ross, I had’nt ever heard anyone play remotely in the way he does. The guy is unique

  3. Sets the heart to pumpin, the ear to listenin, the foot to tappin and the mind to conjurin, tis a privilege to hear!!

  4. WOW! Breathtaking…didn’t know he could sing too…makes me sick to realise how little talent l have

  5. Nice to see the three of them on the stage, they are all legends, Ali Hutton is a big, talented, sexy teddy bear. Jarlath is inspirational. Lovely! x

  6. Played this a lot when ma Mum died in January, beautiful tune, fu’ o’ emotion, it helped let the tears flow. RIP Mum. Is there a recorded version to buy by any chance ? Loving all the music of Ali, Ross and Jarleth, taking af fae where Gordon Duncan left us…..
