Gordon Duncan - Just For Seumas is an innovative album of 14 tracks, all played on the Highland Bagpipes, with accompaniment on some tracks - bouzouki, electric bass guitar, drum corps & percussion. Debut from a highly acclaimed piper. Very highly recommended!
Gordon Duncan is one of the great talents from the young school of Scottish Pipers.

In addition to his solo and pipe band playing, Gordon has also worked with The Tannahill Weavers, Wolfstone, The Dougie MacLean Band and other lineups. He is also a very talented composer, with many fine tunes to his credit which have already been recorded by other pipers, musicians from the fiddle and accordion scene, folk groups and others.
Hamish Moore, known worldwide for his work with the 'cauld wind pipes', has said of Gordon: "This man is precious and should be one of Scotland's living national treasures".
On this, his first solo album, Gordon plays a selection of traditional tunes, some composed by himself and others selected from the crop of other excellent Scottish composers. On some of the tracks Gordon plays solo Highland pipes, on others he is accompanied by Ross Kennedy (who appears by kind permission of KRL, Glasgow - bouzouki); while on other tracks he is joined by drummers Jim King, Alistair McNab, Lyndsey Kaye and Ian Sinclair. His selection also includes a piece of Piobaireachd and on the last track - "Just For Seumas" - Gordon, the drummers, Conrad Molleson (electric bass guitar) and Jim Sutherland (djembe drum and congas) combine for a big finish, which Gordon describes as techno'!
Jim Sutherland produced the album, which was recorded at Pier House Studios Edinburgh.
