TRYST – Album Crowdfunder

Two years ago the Big Music Society commissioned 10 of Scotland’s most forward thinking Pipers to compose, and arrange 10 pieces of music which were performed to great acclaim at Celtic Connections 2017. We are finally setting out to record these pieces. You can join us and be part of this amazing journey which begins now! We’ve teamed up with PledgeMusic and have put together an array of unique gifts which you can pledge for. We would be very grateful if you joined us on this new, exciting, innovative journey. Thanks!!!

At Home – From the Potter to the Piper

I was recently commissioned to write a tune by the very lovely human, Vickie Gray. The tune was written for her partner, Paul. Paul has been a Piper for 60 years, and Vickie is a Potter, and they are coming up to their 20th anniversary. They sell their crafts at the Farmer’s market in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, on the Eastern seaboard of Canada, and also enjoy a tune together. I was fortunate enough, many years ago, to have played at the Lunenburg Folk festival with a band called Brolum. A band of people that I shared some of my happiest memories with. Lunenburg is an incredibly beautiful place, full of the most welcoming folk. It would be an impossible task to put into words the sheer beauty of this place. You just have to go and see it for yourselves. It was a special experience writing this tune as I am so fond of this part of the world, and the people that inhabit it. Hopefully I’ll get back some day to share a wee tune and a dram with Vickie and Paul. All the best guys. Cheers. Ali


Burgess Bagpipes are looking for your help. They are creating the first ever Piping Centre in the Highlands. The facility will be located in Inverness, servicing the local areas. This is an invaluable asset to the surrounding communities. It will encourage people of all ages to go and learn the Bagpipes, an ancient art that will only remain alive through facilities such as this. The guys have started a Crowdfunder page where they offer many unique, one of a kind gifts in exchange for your help. If you can afford to pledge then you’ll be supporting an amazing cause, and will be joining them on an amazing journey. Follow the links below if you’d like to support the guys. Cheers
