Myself, Ross and Graeme MacDonald recently visited the strange, and fascinating, St Peter’s Seminary in Cardross. Completed in 1966, this housed Priests in training. Due to the unique structure the Seminary had many structural and maintenance problems. Also, the declining number of student priests led to its demise. It has been abandoned since the 1980’s. It’s unique architectural design has listed at Category A, the highest level of protected building. Anyway, enough of that. It’s a truly fascinating place to visit. If you get the chance, go in search of this weird place. Here’s a video that Graeme put together of our adventure. Check out his work here….http://graememacdonald.photo

Last Friday we began sharing the tunes that help make up the landscape of our album, Symbiosis 2. This is something that we will be doing every Friday. The release includes a PDF of the tune dots, and a video of the tune being played slowly. We are doing this to encourage folk to learn our tunes and play along. We feel honoured and humbled by the support of our friends, and fans. This is our way of including these lovely people, and allowing them to be part of our journey.
So, here is the required material to help you learn tune 1, of track 1….Dine Like Kings (Ross Ainslie prs/mcps). Played on a D whistle. Tune is in Eminor. The album version is played on an E flat whistle, in F minor. https://rossandali.bandcamp.com/track/kings
