New release .... Theid Mi Dhachaid (I will go home)

Jimi has released a new song/music video to mark the international gathering of Clan MacRae in Scotland in July and the 300th anniversary of the battle of Sheriffmuir this November.

Theid Mi Dhachaid (I will go home) sees Jimi combine Gaelic song/poetry with ancient Highland Pibroch (pipe music) in a unique tribute to his clan.

Follow Jimi as he journeys from the old Sheriffmuir battlefield (where over 50 MacRaes died almost to a man, fighting for the House of Stuart) over mountains and passes to the ancient clan Macrae heartland of Kintail.

Music is an arrangement of Spaidsearachd Mhic Rath (The MacRaes' March) which dates from 1491. Words are an arrangement of Theid Mi Dhachaid 'Chro Chinn T-Saille. (I will return to the cattle fold of Kintail) An English translation is included in the video notes.

The song is available to download at all good on-line music stores. A link to I Tunes is included at the bottom of the video.

Jimi's music is in demand. He has been asked to repress his last three albums following strong sales through UK and international distributors Highlander Music and Book Source. He is looking forward to a busy summer of piping engagements and ambassadorial duties for clan MacRae. Jimi also has plans to release two more music videos showcasing tracks from his most recent album release 'Last King of Pictland'.
