Piping legend Allan Macdonald brings a lifetime of musical mastery to Celtic Connections 2023.
A leading light in the Gaelic musical scene, Allan MacDonald is in demand internationally as a composer, musical director, piper, singer, workshop leader, and lecturer on Gaelic music. In this special show which was premiered at Piping Live! 2022, Allan is joined on stage by a house band of traditional music greats - Finlay MacDonald, Iain MacFarlane, Leonard Barry and Ali Hutton - as they perform Allan's compositions from his seminal Moidart collections The First Hundred and The Second Hundred, including his tune 'We're a Case the Bunch of Us'.
"This was an engaging celebration of both MacDonald and his music, and it will be remembered for a long time by those lucky enough to have attended." (Pipes Drums)
