Aly Bain & Phil Cunningham - Five and Twenty: Always a delight to get an Aly & Phil CD.

Beautiful playing and a cracking selection of tunes throughout starting off with the scintillating Glentown Frolics and ending with the majestic Father John MacMillan of Barra. Also included in the ten tracks is a gorgeous James Scott Skinner Air - Herr Roloff's Farewell and a smashing march Elliot Finn MacDonald written by piper Finlay Macdonald and named for his son.
