Puirt A Beul/Snug In A Blanket - Capercaillie
Here’s the music from the newest Brave trailer:
Feasgar ciùin an tùs a’ Chèitein
Dlùth do rìbinn donn nam blàth-shul
Bha a cridh’ le gaol gu sgàineadh
Nuair a ghlac mi fhèin air làimh i
“Siab do dheòir, do ghaol tha sàbhailt
Thill mi slàn bhàrr àird a’ chuain”
On a quiet evening at the beginning of May
Nearer to the brown-haired maiden of the warm eyes
Her heart was breaking with love
When I took her by the hand
“Wipe your eyes, your love is safe
I have returned to you from the high seas”

Also random sample shot taken my Joe for the website. I just love the simplicity of the shot, it was taken on the floor of the hall we use to practice. Excellence.
This is my bodhran (pronounced bo-RAN), which is a Celtic drum. I’m an accidental drummer, having inadvertently auditioned for the drumline (and made it) when I was in high school.
My friend bought this for me, after showing me hers one night, which I fell in love with.
Other than being portable and impressive to play, it’s also beautiful.
José Ángel Hevia Velasco, known professionally as Hevia, is a Spaniard bagpiper – specifically, an Asturian gaita player. He commonly performs with his sister, Maria José, on drums.
Possibly his most recognisable composition is the 1999 piece Busindre Reel, from his first album Tierra de Nadie. Hevia is known for helping invent a special brand of MIDI electronic bagpipes, which he is often seen playing live, his suffering of asthma limiting his capacity to play the gaita for a whole concert. The instrument was developed with Alberto Arias (pupil and computer programmer) and the electronic technician Miguel Dopico.
