Fourth part of a 110-tune collection recorded by Malcolm MacPherson in 1959 as a companion to the Binneas Is Boreraig music book series.

The 24 Piobearachd on this CD were recorded in Calum Og's later years and are of great significance. They have been digitally re-mastered from original vinyl recordings which themselves have been recorded off reel to reel tapes and are now sought-after collectors' items.

The music in this series does not represent the competitive side of Calum Og, but reflects his style of playing, which developed through from his ancestors (directly back to the MacCrimmons) who were pipers to Cluny MacPherson, as well as John MacDonald of Inverness.

It was the MacCrimmons whose mastery of Piobaireachd, the ancient classical music of the Highlands of Scotland, was unrivalled at any time in history. In turn, their students spread their unique way of playing throughout the West Highlands.
