Description

Titles include such well-known session tunes as Drowsy Maggie, The Kesh Jig, The Connaught Man's Rambles and The Wind That Shakes The Barley. Rob is a master of the campanella style of ukulele fingering, which exploits the unique tuning of the ukulele, and which helps these airs, jigs and reels flow across the fingerboard effortlessly, at times sounding like a small Celtic harp. The CD recording contains all 20 pieces performed by Rob MacKillop, hailed in Celtic World as 'One of Scotland's finest musicians'.
