I have just added Donald Gruamach's March to the site. Certainly one of the biggest tunes and one of the biggest challenges to play.
It really is a classic which tests you all the way through in terms of musicality, technique, stamina and also in terms of control of the bagpipe. I hope you enjoy this great Piobaireachd.

It's been a while since I added news to the site but please be reassured everything is working fine! I still have plenty tunes up my sleeve and aim to get recording some more soon.
This year I learned a few new tunes for the Argyllshire Gathering and the Northen Meeting such as The Aged Warrior's Sorrow, The Middling Spree and The Park Piobaireachd No.2 and so I intend to record them while they are still fresh in my mind.
I was pleased to gain competition success in London by winning the Bratach Gorm. I played The Earl of Ross's March. This was the 5th time of winning so it was a great end to the season.
Will try to keep the news updated much more regularly and thanks for using the site!

The manuscripts for five tunes have been added to the site.
The Old Men of the Shells, The Old Woman's Lullaby, The Prince's Salute, MacLeod's Salute and My King has Landed in Moidart are now complete with MP3, PDF with Canntaireachd and BMW files. This brings the site very close to the first stage of completion before new recordings are added.

Roddy equals long standing record. On the 5th of August, Roddy MacLeod won the Silver Chanter at Dunvegan Castle, Skye playing "Rory MacLoudes Lament"
This win took his number of wins in this event to 6 equalling a long standing record set by the great piper Hugh MacCallum. This was the third year in succession that Roddy won the coveted award.
