Mike, an honorary Scot, from Los Angeles came to Scotland to study, and has spent much of his time playing (don't all students?).. With the Scottish Gas Pipe Band, Ceolbeg and latterly with the Battlefield Band.
"Mike Katz is undoubtedly a powerful player but he has a finesse borne of experience that prevents him blasting out the other players".
Mike here plays the Highland Pipes, Small pipes, various whistles, and bass guitar.
The album features material from very traditional to his own compositions written yesterday, laced with some music from his Breton trips.
