Don Stewart is a member of folk band Dalriada which specialises in Scottish music and, in particular, music written for the bagpipes.
He started a project a few years ago with the notion of recording a bagpipes album of tunes by Australian composers. Liking the guitar/bouzouki parts and reflecting on a previous spoken word album (The Taste of Apple with James Laidler), he turned to the words of one of the country’s most famous poets Henry Lawson and melded them with the music that he had composed.
