This is the tenth and final volume in this quite remarkable and very unique series of recordings, which have both historic and instructional value to all pipers who study, play or simply enjoy piobaireachd.
From the recorded teachings of the great Bobs Of Balmoral, as Robert Nicol and Robert Brown were affectionately known.
The series is mainly intended for instructional purposes but the albums are also of great historic interest and value.
‘An authentic record of the teachings of two men who dedicated their lives to ceol mor and to promulgating the instructions they received from John MacDonald of Inverness. They are nothing less than an inalienable link with the past and genuine oral tradition.’ (Robert Wallace)
‘A must for everyone interested in piobaireachd.’ (Malcolm MacRae, past president of The Piobaireachd Society)
