                        This recording has been inspired by the recent revival of the Scottish cauldwind or bellows pipes. Davie Robertson is one of the most accomplished traditional artists to be connected with the revival and this collection of his work is long overdue. His masterly small pipe accompaniments, his richly authentic East Lothian Scots and the refreshing vitality of his own song compositions offer the best of the on-going tradition of Lowland Scotland. The blending of old and new is completed by the sets offered by Andy Hunter (small pipes), Davie Lockhart (fiddle) and Mike Ward (small pipes and harmonium). I should like to express our gratitude to the Lowland and Borders Pipers’ Society whose efforts have created the appropriate musical environment and to George Philp and Allan Ramsay of Scotsoun who have made this recording possible.
