The second collection of 100 pipe tunes, with a CD that has 58 of the tunes played by Allan on Deger Electronic Pipes.

The success of the three editions of the 'First hundred' Moidart Collection encouraged Allan to produce another collection of one hundred pieces. Forty five of which are traditional and forty five, his own. The rest consists of tunes composed by his brothers Angus and Iain.

Allan, a leading light in the Gaelic musical scene, is always in demand as a piper, singer, composer, musical director, workshop leader, and lecturer on Gaelic music.

His work as a scholar-performer reuniting seventeenth-century piping with its Gaelic roots is influencing a whole generation of pipers.

From 1996 Allan has been teaching on the RSAMD BA Scottish Music Degree Course and its more specialised collaboration with the Piping Centre since 2001.

There are notes at the back of the book, with background information on eighty-five of the tunes are interesting.

Due to technical limitations, Allan has not been able to include all tunes on the CD.

A4 paperback, landscape format.

"The Moidart Collection II, An Deud Ceud (The Second Hundred) does not disappoint: another hundred tunes, another collection of melodies and rhythms to test and influence the thinking and way of playing of our world." Michael Grey.
