Some Piping for the Weekend. . .


A touch of piobaireachd played in a very un-traditional style and accompanied by fiddles, flutes, guitar, harp, and heaven knows what else. Followed up by one of my favourite tunes, Marseail Rí Laoís, of The March or the King of Laois. The relationship between the two tunes is evident and brings up the which-came-first question: Cumha Dhonnchaidh Mhicrath or The King of Laois?
(Molly: the piper is Allan MacDonald.)
