Young Territorial -
Firstly let me say that this album was released by Greentrax Recordings which is why it cannot be downloaded from my site.
Covid really struck us hard and all musicians lost their gigs instantly.
It was tough but I was busy in the studio. I am so proud of this recording.
As a result of my 1998 CD "Hodden Grey" which was dedicated to my father who had been the London Scottish Pipe-Major during World War 11, Maj. Rob Pitt was in touch to ask me to rework some of the songs from a wee book named "Grey Kilts" which was published by Duncan Tovey in 1918.
I could not wait and got on with it immediately.
Since embarking on this task I feel much closer to the dad I lost when I was 19. Thank you.

These days many listen on SPOTIFY or some other streaming service and no longer buy physical CDs.
The artist makes nothing when their album is streamed.
Normally an album is bought once and lasts a lifetime.
I use SPOTIFY in the car but then I do still buy physical CDs.
A lot of heart, time and money goes into the making of albums.
It would be really appreciated, if you intend listening to my music on a streaming service, if you could make a small contribution via the DONATE button below.
THANK YOU. Ian. xxx
