Allan MacDonald to Launch Féile an Fhómhair ’13

Scottish piping legend Ailean Dòmhnallach will be joining us for Féile an Fhómhair 2013. Allan will officially launch the festival on Friday the 27th Sept with a performance in the Talbot Hotel, followed by an informal session.

One of his myriad gifts is to make pibroch accessible and lovable. His work as a scholar-performer reuniting seventeenth-century piping with its Gaelic roots is influencing a whole generation of pipers.

Allan has performed at every major Celtic and piping festival on the planet. He lectures on the Scottish Music course at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music & Drama, and has had numerous commissions to compose for BBC television.
