What others say:

Magical is the only word to describe the wonderful tapestry of sound produced by the combination of Mick O’Brien on uilleann pipes, Pauline Cato on Northumbrian pipes, Barnaby Brown playing both the Scottish Smallpipes and the Sardinian Launeddas or Triple Pipes, François Lazarevitch of France playing an early 18th Century Musette with the addition of Javier Sáinz of Spain playing a copy of the original wire strung Irish Harp and a Renaissance Harp.

The Living Tradition. Review by Jim Byrne and Fiona Heywood of a performance at Piping Live! Glasgow.

They have devised an attractive way of presenting the music. The concert was divided into four sections, each one focussing on the music of one region or country, and each one led by the player whose speciality it was. The leader was then joined, one-by-one, by the other musicians, until the section was brought to a finale with the full ensemble performing.
This approach worked very well. The sounds and capabilities of the different instruments could be perceived and enjoyed in the solo performances, and the various different combinations that were created during the concert provided many wonderful blends of texture and timbre. The selection of material contributed strongly to this as well. With material chosen from many areas, contexts and periods, the result was a very varied, entertaining and satisfying evening of music.
… an imaginative and enthralling show.
