Reviews of New Album!

'Last King of Pictland' - Jimi's New Album - Reviews so far.

'Great album!! If you like bagpipes and rock music - a bit dark and mystical - try it. I bought it last week and all the songs are brilliant. *thumps up*'.... Mar Tina M Erks, Germany..

 'I have heard many "pipes" in my day. From the dyin' cats you wanna put out of their misery, to the technically proficient, with no soul. But This One...The Soul of the Highlands...The Feeling and the Power...The Peace within, the beauty, the fire and passion, celebration and lament....Life in the Music'... Frank Carter, USA


'I really enjoyed this album. An immensely enjoyable listening experience. Plenty rocking bagpipe music here, kicking off with 'Na Criochan' and title track 'Last King of Pictland'. There is also some surprisingly absorbing reflection on ancient mythology that allows Jimi to take the bagpipes in barrier breaking directions. Nine outstanding tracks. My favourite changes with every listen'.....John Wilmott,
