Calum MacCrimmon - When Birds Migrate

Post categories:

Karen Miller Karen Miller | 16:35 UK time, Tuesday, 22 November 2011

Canadian expat Calum finds the native Mi'kmaq tribes share a surprising commonality with the Scottish islanders who colonised Cape Breton, in music as well as a determination to survive the harsh winters.

Calum assembled an enviable cast of musicians for the piece. Calum himself on pipes and vocals is joined by Fraser Fifield on kaval and whistle, Iain Sandilands on vibes and percussion, John Mulhearn on chanter and vocals, Robbie Ward on guitar and fiddle, and James Lindsay on bass.

Listen to When Birds Migrate.
