Music of the Scottish Borders played on the Cauld Wind Pipes. With Nigel Richard, Jo Miller, Dougie Pincock, Alan Reid, Brian Miller and Charlie Soane.

The Cauld Wind (bellows blown) bagpipes have been enjoying a revival in interest over the past decade. A musician at the forefront of this revival has been Gordon Mooney and on this, his first album, he plays Border Bagpipes, Scottish Smallpipes and Northumbrian Smallpipes - solo and in combination with other instruments.

"The whole record has Appeal - with a big A - and is recommended to all those who get a thrill from the music of the pipes." (SOMERS JOURNAL)

"This collection of music of the Scottish borders is performed with a lilting beauty and the arrangement demonstrates the care that has gone into reproducing the tunes. Gordon demonstrates - the amazing versatility of the pipes that left me suitably amazed. Accompanying this album is an absolutely fascinating booklet explaining the history of the playing and the songs." (ROCK N' REEL)
