Over The Hills and Far Away
Over The Hills And Far Away is more than a collection of Border pipe tunes. The creative enthusiasm of The Border Bagpipe Book has been focussed through the lens of the William Dixon manuscript. New insights have combined with scholarship and forty-two years of music-making to bring you inspired and inspiring versions of some great tunes. I have asked questions of this music and, remarkably, it has given me answers.
