The lovely harmonies keep this CD fresh and alive and the combination of two pipers adds energy to the songs as well. While the arrangements aren’t earth-shatteringly different, they work very well and are expertly played. Things don’t have to be modern to be done nicely. As a matter-of-fact, sometimes its refreshing to hear traditional songs just updated slightly and played with confidence. The twelve tracks all have that air about them.
