Brown & Nicol - Masters Of Piobaireachd vol
Volume 8 of this highly acclaimed series of original recordings of The Bobs of Balmoral, which consist of Robert U Brown and Robert B Nicol giving instruction on the art of piobaireachd.
When their competing days were over, ‘the Bobs’ began the task of passing their knowledge on to future generations, and a steady stream of pipers beat a path to their Deeside homes. Many were armed with tape recorders, as in the case of Norman Matheson. Norman built up a sizeable collection of taped lessons, particularly of Nicol, and he exchanged copies of these recordings for others made at schools given by the Bobs around the world. A library of their singing and playing was thus accumulated.
The series is mainly intended for instructional purposes but the albums are also of great historic interest and value.
