New album!

The Birds’ Flight is the culmination of several years’ worth of collaboration between Tim Cummings (pipes), Pete Sutherland (fiddle, song), and Brad Kolodner (banjo). Traditional and otherwise familiar Scottish pipe tunes were handpicked and re-styled to become compelling, authentic-sounding Old-Time/Appalachian-style hoedowns and waltzes. …Or perhaps that’s not at all what happened, and these are in fact genuinely traditional Old-Time tunes that, like much of the established repertoire, naturally possess Scottish DNA, but are only just now resurfacing after more than a century of dormancy. The truth is sometimes murky; but the tunes, songs, and performances featured in this collection are anything but!
